SINGAPORE, June 23, 2011 /PRNewswire-Asia/ — New Zealand companies are out in strength showcasing innovative information and communications technology solutions at CommunicAsia and Broadcast Asia 2011. Thirteen companies from New Zealand comprise one of the largest delegations this year.

The companies exhibiting at this year’s show are keen to boost their presence in Southeast Asia, with a few of them already having established base operations in Singapore. They provide leading-edge ICT offerings ranging from workflow management and electronic payment software to print optimization.

“Only eight years ago, New Zealand’s ICT industry contributed close to NZ$1.5 billion to the economy. Today, it contributes almost NZ$20 billion and employs approximately 40,000 people,” said Ziena Jalil, New Zealand Trade Commissioner to Singapore.

“CommunicAsia is a good time for New Zealand ICT companies to forge meaningful links in Southeast Asia,” said Lee Chuan Seng, Chairman of New Zealand Trade and Enterprise’s Southeast Asia Beachheads Advisory Board. “With the growth in the ICT sector in the past few years, an increasing number of niche opportunities are opening up in Southeast Asia for New Zealand ICT companies to apply their expertise. Companies will be able to charge a premium for products or services with differentiation.”

New Zealand has a wide and diverse ICT sector. Telecommunications and program distribution remains the most significant ICT commodity, with electronic devices and equipment the highest-value export commodity.

Augen, Cable Ways, Converga, DesignA Electronics, Finzsoft, GFG Group Ltd, GSA Pte Ltd, OpenCloud, Pharos Systems International, Repair Group Ltd and Tait Radio Communications participated at CommunicAsia, and GenCom and Metra participated at BroadcastAsia.
