Christchurch Exporters get Government Assistance

“To help build international confidence, a $2 million fund to support visits to overseas markets by earthquake-affected export businesses would be made available through New Zealand Trade and Enterprise. It would cover 75 per cent of eligible travel expenses.
"Exporters have expressed concerns about how people outside New Zealand perceive the ongoing effects of the earthquake on business.
"The funding to support visits to international markets will help them meet clients face-to-face, reinforce ongoing relationships and reassure them that Christchurch, and New Zealand, is open for business."  
On the NZTE webpage there is this piece which refers the reader on:

Canterbury earthquake assistance

Canterbury-based businesses affected by earthquakes may be able to access some special funding support from New Zealand Trade and Enterprise (NZTE).
A package of support measures for Canterbury businesses was announced by the Government on 22 March 2011. NZTE is putting in place systems to administer some of these and more details will be made available on this page once the support becomes available.
In the meantime, you can read the more in the Government’s media release:

To date 91 exporting companies in Christchurch have signed up for this assistance. It is good to hear that the Government recognises their need to go to their markets and tell them that Christchurch is up and running.
