We were pleased to host Joanna Kempkers at a morning coffee event at Minter Ellison Rudd Watts on 16 February.
Joanna was recently the NZ High Commissioner in the Cook Islands.
PEN members had had an earlier opportunity to meet Joanna at the meeting Mfat arranged with 5 Pacific High Commissioners in November 2014.
We are able to enjoy a very informative and useful Q & A session. This enabled those who attended to obtain Joanna's views about exporting to the Cook Islands and how to best expand existing arrangements.
PEN will endeavour to have future returning or visiting Pacific High Commissioners meet members informally during 2015. We think these discussions will greatly assist our members improve their future Pacific export prospects.
