People Diplomacy – India and NZ: Education and Beyond

Join us for an insightful fireside chat with Hon. Penny Simmonds, Minister for Tertiary Education and Skills, as we explore the current landscape of the education and skills sector, focusing on opportunities within the India-New Zealand market.

Get some insights on topics that are current and areas like: What is the focus of the government in developing the skills sector? What research collaborations can we expect with the Indian corporate sector? How can we revive the education sector? and how do we take advantage of the growth that India is witnessing?
