Japanese Agents Visit New Zealand

Education New Zealand: Media Advisory

Japanese Agents Visit New Zealand

Seven education agents from Japan are visiting New Zealand during the next two weeks as part of the ongoing marketing activities organised and promoted jointly by Education New Zealand and New Zealand Trade and Enterprise. During their time here they will be visiting educational institutions in both the North and South Islands.

This visit will build relationships between the agents and participating institutions and allow the agents to see first hand the quality of education and pastoral care that their clients can expect if they choose to come to New Zealand for their education.

Japan is a very important market for New Zealand educators. Interest in the visit by Japanese agents has been high and so 7 agents have come out. They will travel in two independent groups, each spending a week in New Zealand to maximise coverage. During 2002, 12,895 Japanese students came to New Zealand, making it our third largest market.

This visit is part of a comprehensive series by agents from many of New Zealand’s key education markets during 2003. With many international factors such as SARS, the ongoing threat of terrorism and the Iraq War having an impact on international student flows, Education New Zealand is working to ensure that marketing opportunities are available across a diverse range of markets.
