The Australian and New Zealand Chamber of Commerce in Japan has the honour to host the New Zealand Prime Minister, Rt Hon Bill English, at a lunch on 17 May 2017.
Prime Minister English is visiting Japan at a crucial time in the relationship between Japan and New Zealand. During his visit he will be able to share views on current challenges in the regional and global situation. New Zealand is also a key partner for Japan as it seeks to progress TPP, despite the US withdrawal. On these and many other issues both countries share similar views and are well placed to work together.
Japan and New Zealand have a long history of close trade, economic and commercial relationships. This is the basis for new business activities and investment in agriculture, forestry, energy and technology. Tourism, education and sport have brought Japanese and New Zealanders together for many years. The 2019 Rugby World Cup and 2020 Tokyo Olympics/Paralympics will be opportunities to deepen these relationships. In all these fields, Japan is a critical partner for New Zealand.
Prime Minister English will be accompanied by New Zealand Trade Minister Hon Todd McClay and a delegation of leading business representatives. The ANZCCJ event will be an opportunity for ANZCCJ members to hear a keynote speech by Prime Minister English and network with leading members of the New Zealand and Japanese business communities and governments.
