MAORI SUPPORT NZ CHINA RELATIONSHIPS - NGATI KAHUNGUNU IWI
I have no doubt at all that the Maori component of the New Zealand Trade missions has enabled the wider New Zealand business Community to enjoy greater access into regions previously off limits.
Ngati Kahungunu Iwi has purchased a deep sea vessel which will export frozen product directly to China once the eligibility registration has been achieved. This would see a multimillion dollar two-way flow of business from this one Iwi entity. Ngai Tahu, Ngati Kahu and Wakatu and other Iwi Maori entities are enjoying extremely good relationships and success in their cultural and commercial sphere with their Chinese partners. Iwi Maori Companies through the cultural and commercial imperatives can pave the way for more enduring relationships between the two countries despite the short term myopic views of the New Zealand government coalition partners.
Ngati Kahungunu Iwi is scheduling a visit to Hong Kong and Beijing in early May to re-strengthen our relationships with our Chinese Partners before heading to Tokyo to do the same with our Japanese partners......
