2024 Finalists

NZCTA is excited to announce that the finalists for the 2024 Yili Group NZCTA China Business Awards have been selected. Congratulations to all these outstanding organizations!

This year's awards entries reflect the growing diversity of the trading relationship between New Zealand and China. Despite the slowdown in both our economies over the last year companies and organizations engaging in the business relationship between our two countries have shown resilience and continue to be successful.

It is pleasing to see Chinese-owned and operated organizations well represented among the finalists and to see organizations relatively ‘new to market’ gaining recognition. Alongside these are leading-edge companies doing some very special things in both countries including a growing number that showcase our capability in technology and manufacturing. Additionally, traditional sectors remain well-represented and there has been an opportunity to acknowledge individuals and companies that have made a significant contribution to the business relationship over a long period of time.

Congratulations once again to all the following  finalists!
