    Japan New Zealand Business Council’s 45th Annual Joint Conference
    19 -21 November 2018 (Pullman Hotel – Auckland)

    You can now mark your diaries to attend the Japan New Zealand Business Council (JNZBC) Annual Joint Conference at the Pullman Hotel in Auckland on 19-21 November 2018. At a time when attention in New Zealand is focused increasingly on China, it is important not to lose sight of the enormous contribution Japan makes to New Zealand’s economy. The message JNZBC want to convey strongly from the JNZBC Conference is that there is plenty of opportunity for both countries to do more together.
    Under the theme "Japan and New Zealand: Partners in Progress", the programme is set to discuss:
    • Progress in integration of the economies of the Asia Pacific, especially the impact for both countries of CPTPP and RCEP.

    • Infrastructure highlighting major challenges and opportunities in NZ (national and regional projects) as an opportunity for conference attendees to consider how solutions can best be achieved, especially in transport and housing.

    • Shared interest in renewable energy - to find solutions to increase self-sufficiency, lower electricity costs and cut carbon emissions in both countries - that could be re-defining for the bilateral relationship.

    • Forestry - as an important sector in which Japan already makes a major contribution to New Zealand’s economy with exciting opportunities in value added production to move the relationship forward.

    • Agri-business - the role of innovation - particularly robotisation and functional foods.

    • Tourism - the growing importance of the sector to both economies.

     Industry tours remain integral to the programme as an opportunity for delegates to get outside the conference room setting and see something of local business and the economy at first hand. This year NZJBC are working with Uniservices and Viclink to showcase some of the cutting-edge research being done at Auckland and Victoria universities of potential commercial interest to New Zealand and Japanese investors.
    To complete the picture, John Hart, former All Blacks Head Coach, Chairman of the Leverage & Legacy Committee for RCW 2011 and currently Chairman of the NZ Open Championship Organising Committee, will be guest speaker at the conference dinner on 20 November.  This promises to be a special evening - an occasion to invite your business colleagues and friends.
