Honorary advisers

The Asia New Zealand Foundation draws on a network of 15 honorary advisers, hailing from 10 Asian countries. These well-respected figures are a crucial asset to the Foundation in its mission to strengthen links between New Zealand and Asian countries.

The network usually holds formal biannual meetings, and advisers meet individually with the Foundation's chairman and executive director whenever they are in New Zealand.
