  • Virtual Event Indigenous Trade and Connections

    The ANZLF’s Indigenous Business Sector Group hosted  our first ever Virtual Indigenous Trade and Connections event on 22nd February and 1st March 2021.  This was an opportunity to bring Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island business leaders together with Māori business leaders to discuss the challenges and opportunities facing Indigenous business in both countries. 

    We heard from the Minister for Indigenous Australians, The Hon Ken Wyatt AM MP, and Hon Nanaia Mahuta, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Associate Minister for Māori Development, as well as Rino Tirikatene MP, Parliamentary Under-Secretary for Trade and Export Growth (Māori). There were two panels of experts discussing Indigenous business and Indigenous tourism respectively, moderated by the ANZLF Co-chairs for Indigenous Business, Laura Berry and Traci Houpapa MNZM.  We also held a Virtual Indigenous Business Showcase, that is,  a virtual trade fair featuring over forty Indigenous businesses who presented a great range of  goods and services.  We also encouraged our participants to build their networks through group meetings and 1:1 sessions with other participants as well as participation in the virtual trade fair. 

    We thank all our speakers and our 100+ participants for their contributions to this very successful inaugural event.  We were pleased to partner with virtual event management company PAXABLE to deliver this virtual event using their Hopin platform. You can see and connect with all the exhibitors from our showcase below.
