Chair in Business in Asia - Sponsors

Get to know the Chair in Business in Asia’s valued sponsors.

The Chair in Business in Asia is the result of an important partnership between Victoria University of Wellington and three government agencies: the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade, the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment, and New Zealand Trade and Enterprise.

Victoria University of Wellington values these relationships and is sure they will be of mutual benefit. Improving New Zealand’s knowledge base on conducting business in Asia will have positive flow-on effects for all participating organisations, as well as other New Zealand entities conducting business in Asia.
