A new initiative aimed at mentoring organisations which helps migrants and refugees settle in New Zealand kicked off in Auckland last week with a launch attended by 110 people, including the Parliamentary Private Secretary for Ethnic Communities, Melissa Lee.
Settling In grants totalling $162,828 have been awarded to 21 groups throughout the country. These grants are used for projects and initiatives that seek to remove barriers to settlement faced by refugee and migrant communities in New Zealand.

Established in 2004 to celebrate companies with successful business or investment relationships between New Zealand and China, the HSBC NZCTA China Business Awards are a fast track to business and investment success with China.
