NZ Chinese Business Chamber launched

Media statement Wednesday, December 10th, 2003

Business Chamber to promote contribution of Chinese business in New Zealand

The launch of the New Zealand Chinese Business Association is to be celebrated this Thursday, December 11th at a gala cocktail function at Auckland's Carlton Hotel.

Guests at the launch will be addressed by Ethnic Affairs Minister Chris Carter, National Leader Don Brash, Auckland Mayor John Banks, the Chamber's Patron and former Prime Minister, Jenny Shipley, and chief executive of the Employers & Manufacturers Association, Alasdair Thompson.

President of the organisation, Jesse Nguy, said the NZ Chinese Business Chamber was being formed to accelerate the development of business links between Chinese business people and other New Zealand businesses.

"Our purpose is to facilitate the assimilation of Chinese business into the New Zealand business environment," Mr Nguy said.

"The objectives of the Chamber are to help New Zealand build stronger trade links with South East Asia, and to lobby Government on areas of law that are unjust. For example, the recent changes to New Zealand's immigration laws have increased the requirement for English language to an unnecessary extent.

"We will also be working to ensure Kiwis recognise the substantial contribution that Chinese business makes to New Zealand.

"We intend promoting the success of Chinese businesses in New Zealand and for this purpose we will be establishing Chinese Business Awards early in 2004 to be presented at an annual prestigious event later in the year.

"The Chamber will be affiliated to the Employers & Manufacturers Association to benefit from the business advice, especially the employment and tax advice offered by EMA in the Chinese language.

"EMA is assisting the establishment of the Chinese Business Chamber and hosting the inaugural event. Its aims are to extend EMA member contacts and networks to the Chinese business community in New Zealand.

"The NZCBC acknowledges and congratulates the many Chinese associations in the community for their good work. We want to work alongside and with them to better serve the Chinese people in New Zealand."

The Board of Directors of the NZ Chinese Business Chamber are:

President: Jesse Nguy LL.B., Principal, Jesse & Associates, Barristers & Solicitors
V. President: Sammy Wong, Company Director.
