Indian exporters visit New Zealand

Leading exporters of cashews, plastic and chemicals are visiting New Zealand to meet with buyers and importers to explore trade arrangements.

The Cashew Export Promotion Council of India (CEPC) is sending a 10-member delegation to Auckland for business meetings with local buyers and importers.

India is the world's largest exporter of cashews

The delegation comprises of prominent cashew industrialists from India who are keen to use this opportunity to discuss possible business associations.

India is the largest producer and exporter of cashew kernels in the world, accounting for over 65% of the world exports. Indian cashews are consumed in as many as 60 countries all over the world,  with the United States being the largest exporter (US$162 million in 2009-2010). However, Australia and New Zealand account for a very minor share. The delegation is also visiting Australia.

Similarly,  India’s Plastic Export Promotion Council is bringing a plastic trade delegation, and  Chemexcil (Basic Chemicals, Pharmaceuticals and Cosmetics Export Promotion Council of India) is sending a chemical delegation to New Zealand.
