The "International Business Partners" Event was hosted by Auckland Business Group (ABG) and Bank of New Zealand. ABG was founded by Christina Tan and several distinguished members of the Auckland Asian Community. ABG holds several events annually, and one of these events is the "International Business Partners" event.
The Honourable Tim Groser, Minister of Trade, who accepted the invitation of ABG to attend as guest speaker delivered a speech on "Trade between New Zealand and Asia/China".
We were also very lucky to have the Honourable Dr Jian Yang, Member of Parliament, join us on this occasion. He assisted with the translation of the Minister's speech for the convenience of our Chinese guests.
