About our business programme


Our Business programme supports New Zealand companies to better understand Asia so they can make the most of opportunities in the region. We are also focussed on growing the next generation of Asia-savvy business leaders.

What we do

Business internships

We provide tertiary students and recent graduates with opportunities to intern at top companies throughout Asia.

Asia Business and Economic Thought Leaders Fund

We deepen understanding of business and economic trends in Asia by sponsoring thought leaders from Asia to speak at New Zealand conferences.

Strategic Partnership Fund

Our Strategic Business Partnership Fund is to build long-term partnerships between business organisations and the Foundation to enable the delivery of conferences and events focussed on Asia. 

Research

We conduct research looking at New Zealand's business relationships with Asia.

* Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the way the Foundation delivers some programmes will change to reflect the situation as we move through lockdown levels.
