Prime Minister Helen Clark and Richard Yan

Singapore based Richina Pacific has won the inaugural New Zealand China Trade Association (NZCTA) Supreme Award.

Judges were impressed with Richina Pacific’s world first approach to the production of quality finished leather for the garment, upholstery and footwear sectors and also commented on their recent acquisition of a Chinese State Owned Enterprise as the first by a foreign listed company.

Winners of the NZCTA awards were announced last week at an awards dinner in Auckland. Prime Minister Helen Clark presented the awards and as the guest attendee spoke about the opportunities for New Zealand businesses in China.

CEO of Richina Pacific Richard Yan was honoured to be presented with the award.

“This has been a remarkable year for Richina Pacific, embarking on a number of projects that have resulted in a strengthening of our representation in China. We are delighted to have been recognised by the New Zealand China Trade Association.”

As the Supreme Award winner Richina Pacific received prizes worth $23,000. This includes two business class tickets to China on Cathay Pacific, $10,000 cash and services to the value of $3,000.
