INZBC Summit 2021: 
An economic relationship between India and New Zealand must go beyond the traditional model – New Zealand - India business leaders, suggest a new approach

Be bold, develop partnerships, and look for opportunities beyond the traditional trade model – this was the central theme that emerged at the first-ever hybrid summit organised by the India New Zealand Business Council (INZBC) on June 23 – 24, 2021 at Trusts Arena in Henderson, Auckland.
Held for first-time in a physical venue on Day 1 as well as broadcasted virtually for a global audience on both the days, the Summit brought together a line-up of diplomats, business leaders, government and industry bodies, experts and academics from New Zealand and India, to discuss the various issues of diplomacy & trade that affect this
new world order. 

Spread over two days and four engaging sessions, the Summit examined New Zealand and India’s position on the
Indo-Pacific, Globalisation, trade and investments.
