There are many exciting opportunities for people of Aotearoa in North Asia (Japan, greater China and Korea). The North Asia Centre works to develop our language abilities, cultural knowledge, and commercial capabilities.

The North Asia Centre works in two main areas: business and education.

They work to upskill New Zealand businesses to become more confident and capable of succeeding in north Asia. Some programmes include business workshops, digital study tours, expert seminars, targeted support for Māori and Pasifika businesses, and networking opportunities.

They support the development of North Asian language and cultural skills, especially to equip students for success in their future careers. They also support the professional development of North Asian language teachers in New Zealand and link New Zealand students through digital exchanges with counterparts in Japan and Korea.

They create New Zealand curriculum-focused Chinese-language resources and provide tertiary students with digital study-tour experiences to China and Japan.
