The 2018 Agribusiness Hui was held in Raglan following Fieldays

Applications have now closed for this opportunity

The event will leverage off Fieldays, New Zealand’s largest agricultural event held in Hamilton from 12-15 June. Leadership Network members will be joined by a delegation of North Asian agribusiness entrepreneurs in New Zealand through the Foundation's Entrepreneurship Programme.

The event will focus on building connections and team building. It will include a panel session on agribusiness both in New Zealand and Asia and a session on the Individual Leadership Pathway.

Participants will fly into Hamilton on Friday 14 June and will then travel to the hui, which will take place over the course of Saturday 15 June.

Participants are not expected to be experts on agribusiness. Preference will be given to members in Hamilton already attending Fieldays. Participants who attended the Agribusiness Hui last year are welcome to apply.

All costs associated with attending the Agribusiness Hui (return [seat only] travel, meals, planned activities, accommodation) will be met by the Asia New Zealand Foundation.

Participants will be responsible for getting to and from their local airport, and any other personal spending money.

Application Process

Applications have now closed for this opportunity

Applicants will be notified of the outcome within a week of the application closing date. Please note that participants will be expected to partake in all activities.

Selection Criteria

Up to 10 places are available for network members based in New Zealand. Offshore members will be considered, although the Foundation will only meet the equivalent cost of a New Zealand flight. We will not reimburse people for flights already booked.

As places and funding for the Agribusiness Hui are limited, a selection process will take place. Preference will be given to network members who:

  • can demonstrate a genuine interest in learning about agribusiness
  • are connected and engaged in the network and with the Foundation
    are attending Fieldays
  • can demonstrate how this training fits in your Individual Leadership Pathway assessment of growth.
