Automation Alley is embarking on an exclusive trade mission to Australia and New Zealand. Both Australia and New Zealand present a golden opportunity for U.S. businesses dealing in advanced manufacturing, aerospace and defence, automotive parts, agricultural products (a cornerstone of New Zealand’s economy), cleantech, environmental technologies, IT, and medical and healthcare services.

Australia, bound by the Australia-U.S. Free Trade Agreement (AUSFTA) since 2005, offers a remarkable advantage with 99% of U.S. exports entering duty-free. As the largest foreign investor in Australia, the U.S. boasts over 1400 companies operating there, positioning Australia as a crucial component in the diversification strategies of U.S. manufacturers.

In parallel, New Zealand is also a key destination on this trade mission. As the U.S.’s third-largest trade partner in the region, New Zealand holds a strong position with extensive free-trade agreements with Australia, China, and the countries of ASEAN. Boasting the top rank globally for ease of doing business according to the World Bank, New Zealand’s per capita GDP places it among the wealthiest nations. Despite agriculture being the backbone of its economy, New Zealand showcases robust manufacturing and services sectors.

This trade mission presents an unparalleled opportunity for businesses to tap into these thriving markets, fostering economic growth and international collaborations. Join us on this remarkable journey, connecting your business with opportunities Down Under.
