KIWIS value integrity
We were the first country in the world to give women the right to vote in national elections in 1893, we stood strong against Apartheid in South Africa, and we took a stance against nuclear weapons in the 1980’s.
New Zealand has been among the top countries for low public perception of corruption, we are easy to get along with, and We’re ranked #1 by Forbes as the best country in the world to do business.
