Just published in the NZ Herald this morning, a report on foreign interference in NZ elections, Professor Anne-Marie Brady & China's magic weapons, and the National party proposing a ban on foreign political donations. Read the full article here: National floats ban on foreign donations.

The New Zealand Society of Hong Kong is the only non-profit NZ organisation in HK. Established as the community organisation for New Zealander's living in Hong Kong it is entiely self-funded. Since 1957 it has been run by a committee of enthusiastic and active volunteers (not the same people throughout - we're not that old!) who freely donate their time, skill, talent and effort to organise great NZ events, administer the society, raise funds from sponsors, keep the NZ community in HK together and generally make sure NZ'ers in HK can have a cracking great time - whatever they do.
The benefits of being a paid-up member of the Society are too numerous to list completely, but just to mention a few: member discounts at society events; member benefits; free beers; heaps of warm fuzzies from supporting NZ's community in HK. All this quite apart from the opportunity to hang out with exceptional and amazing folk.
Support your own people, the New Zealanders that live here - join your Society!
