AIR NEW ZEALAND
GROWING AND ATTRACTING MORE JAPANESE PASSENGERS
Air New Zealand's
reputation as one of the smartest airlines in the world has helped it
land its second highest profit in the face of
"unprecedented" competition. The company anticipates strong
growth from Japan now that it has started flying to Tokyo's Haneda Airport.
SOCCEROOS GIVEN EXTRA MOTIVATION BY JAPAN
The cricketers have the Ashes against England, the
Wallabies have the Bledisloe Cup against New Zealand and Socceroos
past and present say Japan is the biggest rival they have. Overall
the record stands at seven wins for Australia, eight for Japan and
nine draws. Who will be victorious this month in the World Cup
qualifier in Saitama?
TRADE RELATIONS: FROM MINES TO THE LAB AND BACK
Looking back, we
can see how Japanese investment has helped shape regional Australia
through projects in the Pilbara and the Bowen Basin. More recently we
have seen two-way investment extending into services and technology
such as the finance sector with Japanese banks like Sumitomo Mitsui
Banking Corporation, which have a major presence in Australia.
