Is your business ready to sell in China?
Despite the political tension recently suggested by the media, the trading relationship between China and Australia remains very healthy. In fact, over the last quarter, the total worth of shipments to China reached a new record of AUS$16.5 billion.
New Zealand and China also have a close trading relationship, with the value of all exports to China in 2020 reaching over NZD$18 billion.
