New Zealand's winning hand in China

Commentary

John McKinnon, NZ Ambassador to China designate recently spoke at a NZ China Council Macro/Micro China event. Watch the video to hear John’s insightful thoughts about the growth of the middle-class in China and its increasing demands relating to goods and services, food, housing, and tourism - all areas he says NZ has a good record already.

He predicts demand is going to increase over the next few years. John believes part of NZ’s challenge is our brand, how it carries its appropriate value for Chinese consumers. Brand NZ is perceived very well, as a set of images relating to tourism, safe environment for children to study, as well as having high standards for food safety.
