A delegation from the Chinese Consulate in Christchurch visited Dunedin in September 2022. Consulate General Madame He Ying and her team (Consul Liao Hongyan, Consul Xu Li, Vice Consul Li Muqing) met with Director Professor Sir Jim Mann and Research Collaboration Manager Dr Hu Zhang of the New Zealand–China Non-Communicable Diseases Research Collaboration Centre (NCD CRCC).
Director Jim Mann gave an overview of the NCD CRCC’s activities over the past six years and the Centre’s plans for the coming years. Consulate General Madame He Ying was impressed with the Centre’s achievements and offered the Consulate’s continuous support.
Consulate General Madame He Ying invited the NCD CRCC to visit Christchurch later in September to celebrate the 73rd Anniversary of the Founding of the People’s Republic of China in Christchurch, which the NCD CRCC gratefully accepted.
