WELCOME TO THE NZ SCANDINAVIA BUSINESS ASSOCIATION

Our story

Despite occupying opposite ends of the earth, New Zealanders and Scandinavians have a quest for quality of life and independence of thought. Our heritage of pathfinding enterprise has evolved from pushing boundaries of thinking and walking a different path to seek better outcomes.

Like every good partnership, we share common values. As small countries on the fringes of major markets, we have had to replace power and importance with specialization, ingenuity and entrepreneurship. Scandinavia, for instance, has carved out a worldwide reputation for global businesses operating at the forefront of design innovation and technology.
