“China is a great place for New Zealanders to spend their time, and I believe many more Kiwis will travel there. Today’s China is very different from when I first visited. The main centres are modern, diverse centres with so much to offer visitors. It is fast becoming a must-see on the list of many New Zealanders” Quote from former Prime Minister Hon John Key From the book “My Memorable China Travel Experience”
