The 2019 China-New Zealand Year of Tourism initiative was announced during an official visit from Chinese Premier Li Keqiang in March 2017.

China is New Zealand’s second biggest visitor market and tourism is a driver of economic growth and cultural understanding for both our countries. The Year of Tourism offers opportunities to foster new relationships and strengthen current ones.

The year is sponsored by both the New Zealand and Chinese governments and involves a range of events and initiatives in both countries.
