Executive director's update

This month, our acting executive director Adele Mason takes a look at the recently released Australia in the Asian Century white paper, and covers off the foundation's latest activities, including the Diwali celebrations in Auckland and Wellington.
This will be Ms Mason's last update, with John McKinnon stepping into the role of executive director early next month.

A Gangnam Style quiz

With all the attention on K-pop artist Psy and his break-out hit Gangnam Style, we thought it only appropriate to make this month's quiz about South Korea.
You may be able to dance like Psy, but what do you know about his home country?

Study in Singapore - all expenses paid

Alert all graduating high school students that you know - we're now taking applications for our Singapore Scholarship.
This is an amazing opportunity for a young New Zealander to earn an undergraduate degree at one of Asia's top universities - all expenses paid.
Applications close Friday 1 December.

Grants for arts and culture projects

Working on a project that will help educate Kiwis about Asian arts or culture?
Our arts grants help support such projects, and are open to New Zealand-based arts professionals, arts and cultural institutions, councils and festival and event organisers.
Applications close Friday 30 November.

Asia internships for young journalists

We're offering New Zealand journalism graduates and newly qualified journalists the opportunity to take up internships at
The Philippine Star in Manila
International Herald Tribune in Hong Kong

Kiwi Asian Journalism Scholarship - for Asian New Zealanders wanting to study journalism
Taiwan internship for commerce grads with Mandarin skills

Gordon Campbell:
On The Last Rites For The TPP

The Trans Pacific Partnership trade deal is one of those litmus issues that has always had more to do with one’s place on the political spectrum than with any imminent reality.

To date, the Greens have opposed (a) a wide range of the leaked content of the TPP (b) the secretive way it has been negotiated and (c) the undemocratic way in which any final document would be ratified. Labour has shared some of those concerns, but while remaining generally supportive of the deal itself.

National has, for its part, been very enthusiastic about the TPP, while still giving assurances about Pharmac being protected... For the TPP’s friends and foes alike though, the end now seems nigh. More>>
