Seventeen New Zealand companies will visit Sri Lanka next week to further strengthen business links between the two countries.

New Zealand’s two-way trade with Sri Lanka is worth US$ 323 million with milk powder, fruit and butter being New Zealand’s top exports. New Zealand companies are ready to partner with Sri Lanka in a range of industries such as food and beverage, aviation, transport and logistics, specialized manufacturing, creative services and education.

“The success of our exporters is underpinned by the development of good relationships and continuous innovation in technology and systems,” says Grahame Morton, High Commissioner to India, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and Nepal.

“Sri Lankans and New Zealanders find common experience as citizens of island nations with proximity to larger country neighbours, and a shared love for the natural environment, cricket and rugby. As New Zealand’s focus on the region grows, our relationship with Sri Lanka provides a good base for future expansion,” said Morton.

There are five education institutions joining the business delegation, all offering New Zealand qualifications which are in demand in the job market and ensuring work-ready graduates. The visiting Institutes of Technology and Polytechnics (ITPs) seek to engage with Sri Lankan education providers as well as corporates and industry to showcase their offerings and establish mutually beneficial linkages.

The delegation will be led by former New Zealand Deputy Prime Minister Sir Don McKinnon ONZ GCVO.

The following New Zealand companies are visiting Sri Lanka as part of the business delegation:  ETI Dynamics, DGL International Powder Coatings, Fisher & Pykel Healthcare Corporation Ltd, Eastern Institute of Technology, Genomic and Personalised Medicine Ltd, International Aviation Academy of New Zealand, Maxiloda Limited, NORTHEC, Patton Refrigeration India Pvt Ltd, Powershield Ltd, QualityNZ, Southern Institute of Technology, Tait Communications, Unitec Institute of Technology, Vista Entertainment Solutions, WAML Group, Wellington Institute of Technology and Whitireia New Zealand.
