Asia New Zealand Foundation recently published the report – India and New Zealand: Growing our connectivity, which has been authored by NZ’s previous High Commissioner to India, Graeme Waters.

India is the world’s fastest-growing large economy. Waters touches on the prospects for an FTA and the potential benefits, and discusses the impact direct flights between New Zealand and India could make in terms of trade and tourist flows. The report includes case studies of New Zealand businesses that are exporting to India or have joint ventures, and looks at potential avenues for growth.

“With a workforce estimated to reach 500 million in the next few years, India’s young demographic commands attention,” Waters writes. This contributes to the recent growth in Indian students in New Zealand, with about 29,000 now studying here annually.”

India Trade Alliance welcomes the report and insights. Our General Secretary, Sunil Kaushal, was also asked to contribute his insights into the development of this report.
