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

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.

Working on a project that will help educate Kiwis about Asian arts or culture?
