Course Aims

Trade is the lifeline of the New Zealand economy, and trade with China in particular has become one of New Zealands critical relationships. As such it is essential that those from both countries engaging in business have a good working knowledge of

1) Cultural differences between China and New Zealand.

2) What happens when a transaction based economy such as NZ meets one where relationship building is so important.

3) The difference between China and New Zealand. What is happening when China, one of the worlds largest countries by size, and the largest by population, an ancient history, and with written records dating back 4,000 years trades with New Zealand,  a small population, a young country with a relatively short modern history and with written records dating back only a little over 200 years.

Recognising these points the Confucius Institute and Duo Communication Ltd have jointly created two distinct course programmes.
