PRIMARY INDUSTRY - WINE
Agriculture is how New Zealand earns a living and together with the food and forestry sectors, generate 70% of New Zealand's merchandise export earnings and around 12% of Gross Domestic Product. While the primary sectors’ productivity has continuously outperformed New Zealand’s wider economy, there are considerable opportunities to improve their skills, products and profitability. The opportunities have never been greater and the risks never so varied. We can help you grow and manage risks.
CONSTRUCTION - INFRASTRUCTURE
Construction is heading for an unprecedented boom, driven by the Canterbury rebuild, Auckland housing, infrastructure demand and remedial weather-tightness work. The quality of infrastructure – be it transport, telecommunications or electricity networks, water storage and reticulation, schools, hospitals and recreation facilities – is critical to productivity and economic growth. Heavy and civil engineering firms specialise in large infrastructure projects and is attracting sub-contractors to start an infrastructure side to their business, or a joint venture with others, so they have the option to credibly bid infrastructure work. Contractors have been forced to change and adapt and we can help naviagate through these challenges.
TECHNOLOGY - FIBER OPTICS
Today, business and technology innovation are inextricably linked, and the demand for technology-enabled services is growing rapidly. As an example, at around $2 billion, Ultra-Fast Broadband (UFB) make up one of New Zealand’s most ambitious infrastructure programmes. As of march 2016, the total number of New Zealand households and businesses that were able to connect to UFB was over 900,000. However, when Netflix entered the market last year, demand for fast fibre services has exploded, and waiting times for connections have blown out. Anticipating tomorrow's complex issues and new strategies is a challenge but we can help you stay ahead on the game.
