An all women business delegation of FICCI Ladies Organization (FLO), the women wing of industry body FICCI, is currently visiting New Zealand. During the 14-day trip, the delegation will explore business opportunities in various spheres including textiles, garments and chemicals. The 42-member delegation is led by FLO president Vinita Bimbhet.
 
The delegation, which includes entrepreneurs and professions from pan-India, will visit the city of Auckland followed by Wellington, Queenstown, Franz Josef and Christchurch. The business interest of the delegates includes various spheres like textiles, garments, chemicals, agriculture, infrastructure, education, gems & jewellery, etc.
 
“Over the last 30 years the New Zealand economy has gone from being one of the most regulated in the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) to one of the least regulated, most free-market based economies,” said Bimbhet.
 
Various primary commodities account for around half of all goods exports from New Zealand. There is also sizeable manufacturing and service sectors and growing high-tech capabilities. “The delegation will not only be a great opportunity for delegates to network and bond with each other but also explore business prospects in the places visited,” Bimbhet said.
