Today's China business summit at the Langham Auckland brought together key business leaders from New Zealand and China to review opportunities for doing business in China  moving forward.

In particular, the focus was on the next generation of business leaders.

Michael  Barnett, Chief Executive of Auckland Chamber of Commerce and co-host of the Summit said. "New Zealand's future in China is going to be dependent on us having young people with language skills and an understanding of how business is done both in China and New Zealand.

"The Summit confirmed that we have a good brand for education in China but one of the key things we need to do is to keep track of the young people who come to New Zealand to learn English and can be a fantastic resource for New Zealand."
