The Complexities of Importing into New Caledonia
New Caledonia is a popular tourist destination with thriving tourism industry. At the same time, the whole of the South Pacific region has become a hub for the development of submarine cable systems. These submarine cable developments have positively impacted the New Caledonian telecommunications industry, which has grown significantly.
Furthermore, the thriving hotel industry has driven some Tech imports into the area to connect chain hotels with the global WAN. As a small island, New Caledonia does not have the infrastructure necessary to facilitate large shipments and has put restrictions on cargo size in place, particularly for air freight. Furthermore, despite their proximity, many Australian companies struggle when trying to import into New Caledonia.
