‘Understanding Chinese Investment in New Zealand’ report launch
Auckland Tourism, Events and Economic Development (ATEED) and the New Zealand China Council (NZCC) will jointly launch the Understanding Chinese Investment in New Zealand report commissioned by NZCC in Auckland
New Zealand needs foreign investment to grow its economy. China has become one of New Zealand’s most important sources of foreign direct investment (FDI) in recent years. However, the growth in FDI from China lags behind trade and people-to-people links between the two countries. As our biggest trading partner, China including Hong Kong is our second largest investment partner.
The report highlights recent trends in two-way investment between New Zealand and China; analyses the destination for Chinese investment in New Zealand i.e. land based and other categories of investment and provides background on major investment. It provides a factual base for further discussion on not only the investment relationship but the relationship with China as a whole.
The report will be presented at the launch followed by a panel discussion on NZ Chinese investment featuring:
- Fran O’Sullivan from NZ Inc
- Maggie Chen from Alpha Group
- Tom Nickels from Waste Management
