Post-Covid live panel: New Zealand’s mahi in the region
The North Asia Centre of Asia-Pacific Excellence launched ‘North Asia Post-Covid’, a series of webinars and interactive workshops, to provide businesses and decisionmakers with up-to-date knowledge and analysis of the region’s pandemic responses and commercial adaptation. We held four online events over May and June focusing on mainland China, Japan, Hong Kong, and Korea.
As of August 2020, New Zealand is envied by many overseas for eliminating community transmission of the virus. However, North Asia CAPE recognises the magnitude of the challenge facing our businesses, government agencies, and indeed all New Zealanders.
Our next event is intended as both a celebration of how far we have come together, and an opportunity to prepare for the significant mahi in front of us, as we continue to engage with North Asia, probably the single most important region for New Zealand to get right.
North Asia CAPE would like to invite you to join us after work on Thursday 24 September 2020 to share refreshments and kai, among friends, and hear from an expert panel tasked with helping us to think about how Aotearoa New Zealand might engage more effectively with China, Japan, and Korea, in a world changed forever by Covid-19.
Our panellists are: economist and commentator Shamubeel Eaqub; two-time New Zealand Ambassador to China John McKinnon; and University of Auckland Deputy-Vice-Chancellor (strategic engagement) Professor Jenny Dixon. North Asia CAPE’s director, Professor Paul Clark, will host the evening.
