NZ falling behind in the skills race

Share |
One of the problems for NZ is that its economy has been marginalised in the global productivity race in recent years. The outlook might be expected to improve in future as prospective managers and business owners return from stints abroad. This will also have a positive savings and investment impact on the country – to the extent that it actually occurs. The problem for NZ is that it’s a small remote population. There is little incentive for any business to set up an office here. Apple has only just established a marketing presence here for its I-Pod, not previously available.

The implication is that NZ is being overlooked by multinational enterprises in favour of larger markets. Its weak currency and low wages must at some point look attractive, but the problem is that NZ is struggling to remain relevant. Western countries are more inclined to establish skill-transfer centres in places like the Philippines than NZ. Clearly there are areas where NZ will have greater market advantage, but it’s not in product marketing. Since LVD Consulting set up in NZ it has found the quality of local online marketing wanting. The problem of course is that there is no tradition of marketing sophisticated products to the world given its traditional commodities based trade base. Like other Western markets, New Zealand has a large services sector. Without a sophisticated product focus – what is a NZ company to do to build a skill base in product marketing? Try contacting LVD Consulting.

Japan Foreclosed Property 2015-2016 - Buy this 5th edition report!

Over the years, this ebook has been enhanced with additional research to offer a comprehensive appraisal of the Japanese foreclosed property market, as well as offering economic and industry analysis. The author travels to Japan regularly to keep abreast of the local market conditions, and has purchased several foreclosed properties, as well as bidding on others. Japan is one of the few markets offering high-yielding property investment opportunities. Contrary to the 'rural depopulation' scepticism, the urban centres are growing, and they have always been a magnet for expatriates in Asia. Japan is a place where expats, investors (big or small) can make highly profitable real estate investments. Japan is a large market, with a plethora of cheap properties up for tender by the courts. Few other Western nations offer such cheap property so close to major infrastructure. Japan is unique in this respect, and it offers such a different life experience, which also makes it special. There is a plethora of property is depopulating rural areas, however there are fortnightly tenders offering plenty of property in Japan's cities as well. I bought a dormitory 1hr from Tokyo for just $US30,000.
You can view foreclosed properties listed for as little as $US10,000 in Japan thanks to depopulation and a culture that is geared towards working for the state. I bought foreclosed properties in Japan and now I reveal all in our expanded 350+page report. The information you need to know, strategies to apply, where to get help, and the tools to use. We even help you avoid the tsunami and nuclear risks since I was a geologist/mining finance analyst in a past life. Check out the "feedback" in our blog for stories of success by customers of our previous reports.
