Chairman’s Message 会长致词

Dear Members and Friends,

The China Chamber of Commerce in New Zealand is committed to promoting and supporting the interests of its membersto nurture bilateral relations.
We are proud of our heritage with early Chinese settlers establishing inroads in New Zealand as early as the 19th century. The progressive immigration policies the past decades have seen an influx of Chinese immigrants to these shores as a land of opportunity to develop businesses that have injected vitality into New Zealand’s economic development as a positive and stable social group in our adopted home.

We have embraced Kiwi life as corporate citizens while retaining our cultural heritage to bridge both nations. China is in the midst of a national resurgence with a booming economy that has gradually integrated into the mainstream global economic era, and increasingly become a driving force of the world markets. This has resulted in a transition with China evolving from a commodity exporter into an importing country. New Zealand is rich in natural resources with a stable environment to service the Chinese consumer market with trusted products and services. The economies of the two countries are highly complementary. We encourage our members to use their knowledge and resources for greater impact to contribute to the New Zealand economy.

It is the mission of the China Chamber of Commerce in New Zealand to provide a centralised platform that provides members with information, legal advice and networking to embrace New Zealand community life. We are grateful for the generous support of the Chinese and New Zealand diplomatic corps in our efforts.
