‘Cricket World Cup 2019’ got off to a flyer with New Zealand India Trade Alliance (NZITA) and the British New Zealand Business Association (BNZBA) inking their intensions at a full house at Eden Park on May 29, 2019, on the eve of the Cricket World Cup 2019.

The agreement aims to increase trade between India, UK and New Zealand.

BNZBA President Philip Wood said that the Cooperation Agreement will allow both organisations to provide a regular and recognised platform for promotion, innovation, entrepreneurship, and start-ups between India, UK and New Zealand.

Growing Opportunities

Membership of the two organisations account for private sector innovators, business owners, professionals and managers, creating scope to expand trade opportunities within the region.

“There are huge growth opportunities in the Commonwealth, but it is extremely hard to build the right relationships without assistance and market knowledge.”

Speaking at the signing ceremony, NZITA Secretary General Sunil Kaushal said, “The relationship will promote cooperation and shared information with regard to trade, market development, and services for members of each group.  The Agreement will make it easier for New Zealand based companies to expand into the Indian and UK markets,” he said.

Areas of Coverage

The Agreement covers areas of trade, commerce and industry with a systematic approach to business promotional activity, and participation in exhibitions and trade fairs to be held in New Zealand, UK and India.

Earlier at the event, New Zealand Cricket General Manager (High Performance) Bryan Stronach said that Blackcaps are working hard to win their first Cricket World Cup Trophy.

He was joined by Blackcaps Opener Jeet Raval and New Zealand Cricket Players Association Chief Executive Heath Mills for a panel discussion which ranged from the Players’ Personal and Professional Development, participation in the India Premier League and building the next generation of Black Caps from the grass roots.

The event was hosted by Eden Park who are looking forward to a busy Summer of Cricket featuring the touring Indian and England teams.


NZITA is a not-for-profit organisation, created to promote Closer Economic Relationship Agreement in goods and services between New Zealand and India with mutual advantages for the two countries and members of NZITA.

BNZBA promotes trade and investment relations between Britain and New Zealand. The Association comprises businesses and individuals with a strong interest in developing the business relationship between the UK and New Zealand.
