SPEAKER: Charles Parton, OBE - the extent of Chinese interference activities in the United Kingdom have been under the microscope of ex- UK diplomat and China expert Charles Parton OBE, in a new paper released this month.  It outlines the risks of allowing such interference to go unchecked and what this type of activity means for other Five Eyes countries such as New Zealand. Charles will be in Wellington to discuss the evidence he’s uncovered and the potential for Chinese Communist Party interference in the UK’s academia, politics, media, values and infrastructure sectors.
