HMNZ Ships TE MANA and ENDEAVOUR will be alongside in support of New Zealand Day, Friday 3 June 2005. A Kapa Haka group made up of personnel from both Ships will perform at the New Zealand pavilion at 6:00pm.

Maritime Component Commander, Commodore Jack Steer will be meeting the ships in Japan. “The diplomatic presence of the New Zealand Defence Force in conjunction with a significant international event such as the World Expo 2005 helps increase the profile of New Zealand in Japan, and through this assists the Government in achieving their regional aims”.
