Auckland: a magnet for international investment
According to The World Bank, New Zealand is the best country in the world to do business in, with a competitive and low-compliance tax system. New Zealand’s free trade agreements create a gateway to key markets in Asia and the Pacific.
Auckland is an international and globally-connected city, and is a rapidly emerging innovation hub of the Asia-Pacific. We are increasingly world-renowned as a host of major events, and a magnet for international investors and entrepreneurs who are attracted by our world-leading technology companies and a fantastic lifestyle.
Auckland has a number of industry sectors that are globally competitive and provide domestic and international investors with excellent opportunities. They include technology, high-value food and beverage, screen (including augmented and virtual reality and gaming) and hotel development. Auckland also has one of the fastest growing and highest yielding property markets in Australasia, including outstanding business and industrial property opportunities.
Our region benefits from a highly educated and multilingual workforce, and is perfectly located to service United Kingdom, European and United States companies during the night. Multinationals can take advantage of some of the most competitive labour costs in the Asia-Pacific, active government support for investment, and welcoming immigration and skilled migrant policies that cater for investors, entrepreneurs and business managers.
