Raymond Huo

August 31, 2017

Since arriving in New Zealand from Beijing in 1994, Raymond has traversed successful careers in journalism, as Asian affairs reporter for the New Zealand Herald and law, as a Partner at Shieff Angland Lawyers.

Before returning to Parliament in March 2017, Raymond had served two terms as a list MP (2008-2014), sitting on various select committees including Finance and Expenditure, Justice and Electoral, Local Government and Environment and Commerce.

He is a founding trustee and co-chair of the New Zealand Chinese Language Week Charitable Trust, a cross-party initiative promoting New Zealand’s understanding of China, its people and culture. As part of being “Asia-literate”, he believes this will help prepare our future generations and assist them to make sense of the increasingly important Asian countries and markets.

Raymond is an honorary advisor at the Asia:NZ Foundation and an advisory board member of NZ China Council.

In early 2017 while a partner at an Auckland-based law firm, he became a trustee of the NZ OBOR Foundation and NZ OBOR Think Tank charitable trust.

Raymond has published 7 books (as an author or co-author) and is a regular Chinese media commentator on current affairs and legal issues.

Raymond has been a strong advocate for encouraging our migrant communities to fully participate in society and the political process so they are engaged as contributing citizens.
