Māori business leaders are encouraged to sign up for the 9th annual World Indigenous Business Forum as Rotorua gears up to host the international event.
“WIBF 2018 is a shining opportunity for Māori to showcase our business and trade success to the Indigenous world” says Richard Jefferies, Chair of Te Ohu Whai Ao Trust, the organisation co-ordinating the forum.
“Enterprising Māori will be among the 1000 business leaders from around the globe who are coming to our door. The forum will be bustling with opportunities for partnerships, insights and experience from across the world. Let’s make the most of that.” says Mr Jefferies.
This is the first time Aotearoa has hosted the event which takes place in October 2018. The forum has a proven track record of connecting Indigenous businesses for the long term. The Aotearoa programme will feature Māori industry fieldtrips, cultural interactions and world-class Indigenous speakers.
