New Zealand (NZ) and its people

New Zealanders or informally known as Kiwis, are friendly and down-to-earth people who embrace the spirit of hospitality. With a patchwork history of Māori, European, Pacific Island, and Asian influences, New Zealand’s population of five million people is a melting-pot of cultures. Over three-quarters of the population live in the North Island, with one-third of the total population living in Auckland and other main cities of Wellington, Christchurch, and Hamilton.

Over four hundred years before Christopher Columbus and the rest of Europe worried about falling off the edge of the world, Māori people voyaged thousands of miles across the vast unknown Pacific Ocean in small ocean-going canoes and became the first inhabitants of Aotearoa New Zealand. Māori culture is a core part of New Zealand’s national identity. English, Māori, and New Zealand Sign Language are the official languages, with English predominant. New Zealand was ranked second on the 2019 Global Peace Index. The crime rate is meager, and religious tolerance is high. New Zealand was ranked second on the 2018 Corruptions Perceptions Index. Some of the political scandals are laughable, purely because they are so minor compared with those of other countries.

New Zealand is one of the most picturesque countries in the world and is perfect for adventurists, looking to explore and take in all the sights that are on offer. The things you can see vary from dense forests to breathtaking glaciers and modern landmarks, all of which provide a vibrant mix of contemporary City versus traditional Māori culture. New Zealand’s sub-tropical climate is generally warm and dry, especially the east coast of the North Island boasts long, warm summers and comparatively mild winters. New Zealand is the place to go for a relaxed lifestyle. People do not expect too much, so the work-life balance emphatically favors life. New Zealand has world-class seafood, lamb, wines, and cheeses. There is plenty of delicious Asian food around, as well as the best European food presented in a range of fresh Kiwi styles.

NZ Healthcare

New Zealand has a quality public healthcare system, funded directly by the Government, and available free or at low cost to all permanent residents and some work visa holders. New Zealand has a quality public healthcare system, funded directly by Government, and available free or at low cost to all permanent residents and some work visa holders. New Zealand’s healthcare system has three levels of care: primary, secondary, and tertiary. Primary healthcare includes the family doctor, dentists, pharmacists, and allied health, which encompasses physiotherapists, podiatrists, counseling, and other medical services.

NZ Education

The Programme for International Student Assessment ranked New Zealand’s education as the seventh highest in 2009. The Education Index, published with the UN’s 2014 Human Development Index and based on data from 2013, listed New Zealand at 0.917, ranked second after Australia.

Primary and secondary schooling is compulsory for children aged 6 to 16, with most children starting at 5. Early leaving exemptions may be granted to 15-year-old students that have been experiencing some ongoing difficulties at school or are unlikely to benefit from continued attendance. There are 13 school years and attending state (public) schools is nominally free from a person’s fifth birthday until the end of the calendar year following their 19th birthday.

The academic year in New Zealand varies between institutions. Generally, it runs from late January until mid-December for primary and secondary schools and polytechnics, and from late February until mid-November for universities. New Zealand has an adult literacy rate of 99 percent, and over half of the population, aged 15 to 29, hold a tertiary qualification. In the adult population, 14.2 percent have a bachelor’s degree or higher, 30.4 percent have some form of secondary skill as their highest qualification, and 22.4 percent have no formal qualification.

Reduce Overheads & Operations Risk
High operating costs, staff attrition, and corruption are the main challenges to the effectiveness of small International Procurement Offices (IPOs) below ten staff members. Through outsourcing your IPO to Cosmo World Export, you can immediately reduce your overheads, reduce staffing risk, and the risk of corruption while gaining access to the Cosmo’s Sourcing network and expertise.

Increase Productivity & Capabilities
For any IPO capability to execute process productively is key to effectively sourcing goods and services. Within a small IPO, developing and retaining the scope of category expertise and consistently following rigorous procedures is a challenge. Procurement Outsourcing with Cosmo gives you access to a broader category of knowledge and strong process capabilities.

Flexible Global Network of Operations
A typical mistake for internal IPOs is limiting the sourcing to the country where the IPO is based instead of conducting exact global supply. As states’ relative competitive advantages shift rapidly, this leads directly to reduced competitive advantage. Through Procurement Outsourcing, you gain access to a flexible global network of operations experienced in conducting regional and global sourcing operations.
