Global Development | Poutama - Servicing Maori business for over 20 years

By: Poutama  06-Dec-2011

Poutama helps Maori business identify, investigate and enter export markets. Additionally Poutama also assists with import opportunities and is also looking at opportunities for Maori to invest offshore.

Poutama has been helping businesses to enter offshore markets for some time now and believes that for many businesses, this is the only way they will grow. Technological development and pace also offers the opportunity for even the smallest and most remote businesses to be global players.

As we move towards 2020, Poutama will become increasingly involved in identifying and assessing opportunities in the wider Asia area. While trading ties with Japan and Sth Korea will continue, China and India are well on their way to being economic powerhouses. Other countries in the Asia region such as Malaysia and Vietnam are also experiencing growth. Keep an eye out for Indonesia, with the world's fourth largest population, a growing middle class and it being the closest Asian country to NZ, Indonesia holds enormous potential.

Poutama has contacts and connections in some of these markets that will help with identifying and assessing opportunities.

Poutama's international business services will help you investigate any market in the world where you think there may be a business opportunity.
