Since 1917, the British New Zealand Business Association has been developing and promoting bilateral business associations, trade, investment and goodwill between the United Kingdom and New Zealand.

"The BNZBA plays a crucial part in sustaining and promoting business, commercial and personal links between the UK and New Zealand.  Given that both countries are outward-looking island nations, whose prosperity depends on free trade, it is very important that our companies continue to forge partnerships not just with each other in the UK and New Zealand, but also throughout the Asia-Pacific and European regions.  I am delighted that the BNZBA is dedicated to fostering that sort of cooperation."

The BNZBA was very sad to learn of the death of Maggie Collinge, wife of our patron John Collinge, who passed away whilst in the UK on the 1st February. Maggie was a regular attendee at our functions and a strong supporter of the Association and so we pass on our deepest condolences to John and his family at this sad time for them.
