New Zealand firm to hold fair to attract investors

New Delhi: Auckland-based investment company NZ Financial Solutions is organising a two-day event here from Jan 23 to boost investments in real estate, sports and lifestyle opportunities in New Zealand. Investors and entrepreneurs will also get to explore possibilities of business tie-ups in pinewood shipping, meat processing, food processing, dairy farming and fruit packing, the company said in a statement. The event will be inaugurated by former cricketer Richard Hadlee, it said, adding that similar events will also be held in Chandigarh and Ludhiana. "New Zealand for the first time will be promoted as a land of abundant business opportunities," the statement said. "We will also promote Auckland as the fourth best city in the world to live in (according to a worldwide Quality of Living survey by consultancy firm Mercer) and New Zealand as the least corrupt country in the world (drawn up by the anti-graft watchdog Transparency International)," it further stated. At least 100,000 Indians live in New Zealand. (IANS)
