Promoting a New Zealand education experience in Guangzhou
Two recent workshops in Guangzhou provided a great opportunity to engage with key players in the region’s education and tourism sectors, while promoting New Zealand’s quality education offering.
Several New Zealand education providers also participated, and the workshop reflected a strong collaborative effort by Tourism New Zealand and Education New Zealand Manapou ki te Ao (ENZ), as well as the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade.
NZ Inc agencies again worked together to deliver a successful workshop for more than 50 education agents in Guangzhou later the same day. Representatives from 11 New Zealand education providers gave presentations and made the most of the opportunity to engage one-on-one with the education agents in a ‘speed dating’ format.
“Guangzhou is an important education partner for New Zealand,” says Felix Ye, ENZ’s Senior Market Development Manager who is based there. “It’s important for us to engage directly with key people in the sector, to raise the profile of New Zealand education given the full resumption of visa processing this month.
“We took the opportunity to emphasise New Zealand’s commitment to providing quality education, supporting student wellbeing, and encouraging global citizenship, in line with the refreshed New Zealand International Education Strategy.”
