Welsh keen to attract NZ tech business

6:20 am on 19 November 2009

Kiwi technology firms looking to expand into the UK are being offered free office space and expert advice through an initiative backed by the Welsh Assembly.

On Thursday, International Business Wales is launching a new pilot project called Access Wales, in a bid to attract high-growth companies to the country.

Rhodri Jones, vice-president of International Business Wales, for Australia and New Zealand, says eligible firms will receive 12 months of free office space and facilities, as well as about $40,000 worth of support from business consultants.
