Asia After Five is a social networking event hosted by the Asia New Zealand Foundation.

Mix and mingle over drinks and nibbles, hear stories from inspiring individuals and get a taste of the many strands of the New Zealand-Asia relationship.

This Asia After Five focuses on the media’s coverage of New Zealand’s relationship with Asia. The Asia New Zealand Foundation has been supporting New Zealand journalists to report on and travel to Asia for more than two decades. This year sees a new milestone in the Foundation’s history – the launch of the Asia Media Centre. The centre has been set up as a resource hub for New Zealand journalists to access expertise on Asia and Asian peoples.

Join us for a discussion about New Zealand media’s coverage of Asia. RNZ Insight Executive Producer Philippa Tolley will share her experiences from the 2017 Spring Jefferson Fellowship, which saw journalists learning about the big issues for the region – trade, security and stability – in Hawaii, Japan, China and the Philippines.

We are happy for you to invite a colleague or friend to the event. For catering purposes, please ensure they are registered.

Please note that you will need to enter Fujitsu Tower before 6pm as doors close after that time.
