About us

The North Asia Centre of Asia-Pacific Excellence (CAPE) is committed to helping New Zealand build sustainable, future-focused trade relationships with Greater China (including Hong Kong and Taiwan), Japan, and Korea.

As part of this commitment, we welcome a plurality of perspectives to facilitate important conversations about New Zealand’s role in global trade, economic, education, and cultural relationships.

Whether you are an exporter with an eye on China, a business student wanting to deepen your understanding of Korean culture, or a teacher focused on helping students learn Japanese as a second language, we can help.

Our diverse programme of work includes:

  • Practical workshops for businesses
  • Expert speaker seminars offering economic analysis and geopolitical insights
  • Opportunities for in-country language and cultural immersion, business internships, and professional development
  • Support for language pathways for teachers and their students, from school to tertiary
