Message from the President, Sir Anand Satyanand

NZIIA President Sir Anand Satyanand has described the forthcoming visit to New Zealand of President Moon Jae-in as most timely.   

"Our links with the Republic of Korea are many and diverse, and include strong political and economic relations. Along with others in New Zealand, the NZIIA follows closely developments on the Korean peninsula. This visit provides an excellent opportunity for New Zealanders to  learn more at first hand about the aspirations of President Moon's government for peace on the peninsula as well as ways of strengthening relations with one of our most important trading partners."
