“China and New Zealand enjoy an impressive and proud list of ‘firsts’ in China’s relations with developed countries. To name a few, New Zealand is the first developed country to conclude bilateral negotiations on China's WTO accession, the first to recognize China's full market economy status, the first to sign and implement a bilateral FTA with China, the first to join the China-initiated Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank as a founding member, the first to hold a nationwide Chinese Language Week, the first country to announce the launch of negotiations to upgrade bilateral FTA.” 

Li Keqiang, Premier of the State Council of  People's Republic of China

SUPPORT FOR NZ CHINESE LANGUAGE WEEK

“My greatest regret in business is I don’t have the skills to speak the Chinese language, due to the significant amount of time and impact the Chinese creative industries have had on my career. We are intimately linked to China and a good understanding of each other’s language can only further advance this already rich relationship.”

—Sir Richard Taylor, Weta Workshop
