NZCTA & CCPIT establish the New Zealand China Business Assembly


In November 2014, NZCTA Chairman & CCPIT Vice Chairman Yu Ping, signed an MOU establishing the New Zealand-China Business Assembly.

The purpose of the MOU is to set up a cooperation framework of Business Assembly between New Zealand and China.

Since the New Zealand-China Free Trade Agreement came into effect, trade activities between the two countries have been significantly boosted. Meanwhile, as China’s economy continuously grows and New Zealand-China economic and trade ties deepen, investment cooperation between the two countries have been expanded to agriculture, light industry, food processing, dairy produce, resource development, insurance, etc.
To provide New Zealand and Chinese businesses with more targeted assistance and further promote trade and investment cooperation of the two countries, the parties decided to establish the mechanism of the New Zealand- China Business Assembly.

Within the framework of the Assembly, the Parties will jointly carry out activities including but not limited to:
Annual meetings
Trade and investment functions (which may be held in the forms of forums/ seminars/ roundtables) and with the purpose of briefing business climate, promoting advantageous industries, products or services, sharing best practices, business match-making, etc..
Business-to-Government Dialogues which allow business leaders to directly communicate with senior government officials about issues of interest.
Reports & Whitepapers that provide businesses and policy-makers with discussions and observations on hotspot issues related to market, legislation and law enforcement, policy trends, etc.
Lobbying that will be performed by the two chapters to advocate for the corporate circles and to create favorable environment for businesses in both countries.

NZCTA will be following up with its members in due course to seek member engagement.
