Chinese company plans for 'little NZ'
China has announced to come up with a "little New Zealand" with an investment of $400 million for tapping huge tourism potential of the region besides opening doors for employment, education and immigration opportunities.
New Zealand based Awataha Marae in Northcote has signed a deal with a major Chinese company for developing a theme park project with huge employment opportunities at Qufu City located at northeastern province of Shandong in China.
Anthony Paetawa Wilson, Managing Director of Awataha, said, "The Chinese will get to experience a slice of New Zealand without even leaving their shores, and it will sure tempt them into wanting to see and experience the real thing." Wilson, however, declined the identity of China based organization.
Awataha would be responsible for the construction and management of the park which is expected to see 1.5 million visitors in the first year. The project would prove a milestone in enhancing people-to-people contact after the free trade agreement.
