We're pleased to also invite you to our Forum Networking event, 5:30pm at AUT University to celebrate the NZ ASEAN relationship.

The plenary keynotes will set an overview of the ASEAN - NZ political and economic relationship, and how that importantly impacts on the business we do.

The breakout sessions delve deeper into the Forum themes of:

  • Resilience (supply chains and business continuity),
  • Reinvention (Innovative Sustainability) and
  • Rejuvenation (positively using a crisis to affect change, and responding to consumer behaviours).

Throughout the Forum we'll be focussed on providing the best possible interaction with our digital audience and e-networking options. As always, our aim is to create strong awareness of the possibilities for NZ business in ASEAN and ASEAN business in NZ. The ASEAN Forum is on Wednesday, 2​nd September, in the afternoon (NZ time).

Your virtual event tickets will be sent out closer to the event to your nominated email address
