Amelia Linzey, Beca Group Director – Consulting and Chief Planner, was one of 13 business leaders selected to accompany New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern on a trade mission to Singapore and Japan this week. The delegation also included the Minister for Trade and Export Growth, Damien O’Connor.
We are extremely honored that Amelia, a member of Beca’s management team, has been invited to join the Prime Minister on his first overseas visit in over two years.
Singapore and Japan are two of New Zealand’s most important bilateral trading partners, and the trade mission is an opportunity to reaffirm strategic partnerships between government, business and industry, and focus on supporting to the economic recovery and growth of the three countries after the COVID -19 pandemic.
“This is a wonderful opportunity for Beca and New Zealand Inc to demonstrate that we are fully open for business,” says Amelia. “It allows us to engage and deepen our relationships with our customers and partners in Singapore and Japan, build relationships with other New Zealand companies operating in this region and use the visit to identify opportunities to expand our service delivery into new markets and industry sectors.
Trade commissioners were invited to a series of events, including participation in a customary welcome ceremony and an unveiling of Kūwaha at Gardens by the Bay, as a symbol of the strong cultural ties between the two countries. The trade mission provides face-to-face opportunities to meet leading Singaporean and Japanese companies and industry partners to discuss topics such as new technologies and digitalisation, innovation, climate change and sustainability, all key areas where Beca has much to offer our international markets.
