    Alibaba is setting up an office in Australia to Help Australian and New Zealand Businesses DropShip our local products overseas.

    Although the local costs of our goods won't be competitive against the Chinese markets, Jack Ma hints that we have precious products that the Chinese find desirable.

    For instance you can buy at Duty Free counters at New Zealand Airports a product that bottles New Zealand air. https://www.purenewzealandair.com/ (Yep that's right) An instant flash back to Space Balls comes to mind.

    I wonder if this could be very good news for getting around Australia Posts uncompetitive rates, e.g. Alibaba hires a cargo plane for all their shipments from Australia to China.
