Research published by the Asia New Zealand Foundation – New Zealanders’ Perceptions of Asia and Asian Peoples – suggests New Zealanders have low knowledge of Asia, even though they recognise the region’s importance to New Zealand’s future.

Young Kiwis have particularly low knowledge base, which doesn’t bode well for New Zealand’s ability to engage with the region. What does this mean for our businesses, given New Zealand’s growing economic ties to Asia? And why does it matter?

Asia New Zealand Foundation executive director Simon Draper will discuss the work the Foundation is doing to develop a #ThinkAsia careers pathway to address the deficit.

Speaker:

Asia NZ Executive Director, Simon Draper
