Working together, the CAPEs harness evidence-based research, stakeholder experience, academic expertise, and industry acumen to deliver practical education and knowledge, resources, and support to New Zealanders.
Their mission is to utilise university expertise and academic networks to create a step change in New Zealanders’ Asia-Pacific skills and knowledge. Collectively, they aim to inspire a passion for cultural learning, deepen connections, foster future business links, and enhance public awareness of the importance of the Asia-Pacific region to New Zealand and the world.

Supported by
New Zealand Story

The New Zealand Story Group has been set up to enhance New Zealand’s reputation beyond natural beauty. In a competitive global economy, reputation matters. And it’s important for a country like ours, with an economy that relies on the strengths of its exports, to continue to grow and diversify. The more we can do to ensure we’re all telling a broad, compelling and aspirational story about New Zealand, that’s grounded in our values and resonates with the world, the greater chance we have of attracting people to all that we offer. Put simply, we need to make New Zealand famous for more good things.
