Manufacturing for the construction sector grew 9.5 per cent and meat and dairy product manufacturing grew by 8.6 per cent over the latest quarter. These are outstanding results, and are obviously part of the driver for current GDP growth. Manufacturing is having a huge impact on how well the New Zealand economy fares.

  • ENVIRONMENTAL:

 New Zealand holds an enviable position worldwide similar to a 'perfect, green' nation. This position is utilized to its full extent by many businesses and the government to promote New Zealand products and services.

Moreover, there is little data on the environmental conduct of New Zealand Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises (SMEs) or the assembling area. The assembling division is of extensive enthusiasm for deciding the ecological practices of SMEs because of its nearby association with vitality utilize and contamination. The exploration accumulated an assortment of subjective and quantitative information by method for an email study sent to New Zealand manufacturers.
