Asia New Zealand Foundation is a non-profit, apolitical organisation dedicated to promoting greater understanding between New Zealand and its Asian neighbours.
The foundation works to develop New Zealanders' knowledge and understanding of the countries and peoples of Asia, and to help New Zealanders acquire the right skills to work effectively with Asian counterparts, build New Zealand's links with Asia, and promote and assist New Zealanders' participation in regional activities.
