Education New Zealand is helping Local Government New Zealand to organise the NZ-China Mayoral Forum in Wellington at the end of the year.

ENZ’s Regional Project Manager Sarah Gauthier said this year’s forum builds on the success of the first forum held in Xiamen, China, in 2015, which produced tangible outcomes for mayors from both countries.

The 2017 forum theme is ‘Sustainable economies – balancing economic development with the environment’. Discussion topics will focus on tourism, education and primary industries.

There will be a range of mayoral delegations attending the 2017 forum, with a special business forum and session being planned for business delegates on 3 December.

ENZ is assisting with the education sector discussions, which will highlight the value of the education partnership between China and New Zealand.

“We are eager to share how New Zealand exposes its international students to innovative ways of teaching and learning, while equipping them with the skills they need for career-ready and entrepreneurial futures,” said Sarah.

Have something special to showcase at the forum?

She said the forum is a great platform to promote innovative programmes, products and services that showcase New Zealand’s expertise in the education sector. Visit the LGNZ forum website for information about sponsorship opportunities and to download the sponsorship prospectus.

Business forum and matching meeting

The theme for the business-matching session is ‘Smart business for smart cities’. Meetings will be held on Sunday 3 December. Visit this link to view the forum programme and this link to register for the business-matching meeting sessions.

The forum will be held on 3-4 December 2017 at Te Papa, Wellington. For more information, contact Sarah at sarah.gauthier@enz.govt.nz.
