CHI­NESE CEN­TRE

Central Leader - - YOUR PAPER, YOUR PLACE -

Auck­land will have a Chi­nese Cul­tural Cen­tre fol­low­ing the sign­ing of an agree­ment be­tween mayor Phil Goff and Chi­nese Am­bas­sadorWang Lu­tong last month. Auck­land was cho­sen as the lo­ca­tion for New Zealand’s se­cond Chi­nese Cul­tural Cen­tre be­cause of its cul­tural di­ver­sity, size, and the fact that it was home to 120,000 Chi­nese peo­ple - New Zealand’s largest Chi­nese com­mu­nity. New Zealand will be the first coun­try to have two Chi­nese Cul­tural Cen­tres. 2017 marks the 45th year of diplo­matic re­la­tions be­tween New Zealand and China, and Auck­land’s new Chi­nese cen­tre sym­bol­ises the strength of the re­la­tions be­tween New Zealand and Auck­land with China.
