Asia New Zealand Foundation
The Asia New Zealand Foundation is a non-partisan, non-profit organisation, set up in 1994 to build New Zealanders' knowledge and understanding of Asia. The Foundation relies on a mix of public, philanthropic and corporate funding.
The Asia New Zealand Foundation is New Zealand's leading non-government authority on Asia. The Asia New Zealand Foundation's activities cover more than 20 countries in Asia and are delivered through seven programmes, including Arts and Culture, Business, Education, Leadership Network, Research, Media and Thinktanks on strategic, regional and security issues.
The Asia New Zealand Foundation supports many projects every year through grants to institutions (such as art galleries and universities) and individuals to promote cultural links between New Zealand and Asian countries. Further information on these activities is available on the Foundation’s website: http://www.asianz.org.nz
