Make the most of New Zealand’s connectedness to the rest of the world.
New Zealand has never been closer to the rest of the world. Online communications and advances in international transport mean local institutions and industries can easily participate in world markets.
Our passion for experiencing other cultures and countries has earned New Zealanders the reputation of being the world’s greatest travellers.
New Zealand is a compact country and highly responsive to the changing needs of global communities and international business. We are keen observers of emerging trends and are inclined to adopt new technologies early and successfully. In the 1980s, for example, we were the first country in the world to trial electronic payment systems (EFTPOS).
When Wellington local Peter Jackson directed the Lord of the Rings movie trilogy he chose to shoot and produce the films entirely in New Zealand. Our global connectedness made it possible to open a branch of Hollywood in the South Pacific.
New Zealand’s early adoption of new technologies, together with a motivated, enquiring mind, have helped New Zealand BA and MBA graduate Tom McLennan secure his position as Head of Music – Mobile Internet and Content Services for Vodafone UK.
