China Business Summit: Still time to register

Auckland Chamber of Commerce CEO Michael Barnett says China offers huge opportunities for New Zealand businesses, but too few are taking the plunge and entering the market.

Chaired by Barnett and NZ INC Ltd director/business columnist Fran O’Sullivan, the summit will open with an address from Prime Minister John Key who will discuss the Government’s evolving China strategy and future direction.

Other speakers will include: Fonterra chief executive Theo Spierings; NZTE trade commissioner – Guangzhou Pat English; Mainfreight CEO and Deloitte/ NZ Management Top 200 Executive of the Year (2011) Don Braid; China investment specialist David Mahon; and China strategist Alan Carroll.

Economic Development Minister Steven Joyce will talk about the practical steps the Government is taking to expand NZ’s business engagement with China and the summit will discuss the New Zealand brand story and potential threats to the brand.

The China Business Summit is being held at the Langham Hotel, Auckland, on Wednesday 3 October. For more information visit ‘China Summit’ at or email [email protected].
