Entries are now open for the 24th AmCham–DHL Express Success & Innovation Awards for companies doing business with the USA and held in conjunction with United Airlines. 

The American Chamber of Commerce is delighted to announce the launch of the Awards. 2023 is the 24th year these awards have been held and they celebrate business achievement between New Zealand and the United States.  The US is New Zealand’s third largest trading partner with bilateral trade now worth around $20 billion – goods exports to the US total $7.8b and imports from the US are also worth around $7.8b. 
To allow greater flexibility there are no set categories for the three exporter awards this year. Once applications are in the judges will decide on three categories.  
With United Airlines now flying back to New Zealand and the Covid pandemic no longer an issue, the Contribution to Tourism with the USA award is being brought back.  
As sustainability and climate change are such an important issue too, the judges will select one of the finalists to receive a Commitment to Sustainability/Climate Change award.
Commenting on the awards, Mark Foy, Managing Director, New Zealand & Pacific Islands for DHL Express, said DHL Express is proud to partner with AmCham to deliver the 2023 AmCham-DHL Express Success & Innovation Awards. “We know that the USA remains as one of the top exporting destinations for New Zealand businesses, who we see using ingenuity to improve business processes.

“Innovation and Kiwi ingenuity are at the heart of numerous Kiwi export success stories and we look forward to seeing the high calibre of this year’s finalists”.
