New Zealand Business Roundtable in China Formally Launched

Profile

The New Zealand Business Roundtable in China (NZBRiC) was formally launched in Shanghai on Wednesday 5 September at an event which gathered senior members of the New Zealand business community.

NZBRiC Chair Kevin Parish said, “The NZBRiC is a representational platform led by New Zealand businesses which will advocate for key interests on behalf of New Zealand business operating in China – corporate, SMEs and entrepreneurial endeavours.”

“The NZBRiC will also provide a regular forum for New Zealand business to share experiences, opportunities and challenges for their continuing China operations, growth strategies and new value creation.”, added Mr Parish.

Zespri, Fonterra, Primary Collaboration New Zealand (PCNZ) and KEA NZ are among the Founding Board members of the NZBRiC.  Other members include Air New Zealand, Les Mills, China Skinny, Vista Entertainment and representatives from legal and consulting services.  The New Zealand government acts in an advisory role on the Board through ex officio representatives from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade, New Zealand Trade and Enterprise, Tourism New Zealand and the Ministry for Primary Industries.

The NZBRiC hosted its first formal event, a Digital Forum, with presenters and key opinion leaders discussing critical factors for success in online and social media in China.
