    Dissecting China’s ‘Two Sessions’ in 2024

    Every March, the ‘lianghui’ or ‘Two Sessions’ political meetings in Beijing set the scene and key directions for China’s year ahead: its intended socio-economic goals and strategies, priority sectors, key personnel appointments and foreign policy settings. These are valuable signposts for New Zealanders following latest developments in China. In this podcast, Director of the Contemporary China Research Centre at Victoria University of Wellington Associate Professor Jason Young returns to distil the essential highlights of the 2024 ‘lianghui’ in discussion with our Executive Director Alistair Crozier.

    Tasting The Future

    Tasting The Future

    ‘How to feed 1.4 billion people’ is already a big question. And how to do it sustainably?
    Answers to these questions are not only crucial for people in China, but also important for New Zealand. China is our largest trade partner: Understanding its future sustainable food policy directions, and how this will affect China’s food consumption, production and investment, is essential.

    In late 2023 we commissioned Trivium China to prepare a research report on China’s policy and regulatory approaches to sustainable food, with a focus on protein. This podcast is a recording of the report launch webinar on 4 December, including the report author’s summary of key findings and an industry experts discussion, co-hosted with the North Asia Centre of Asia-Pacific Excellence.

    China and climate change: Perceptions and reality

    China and climate change: Perceptions and reality

    How do New Zealanders assess China’s response to climate change? We recently had a unique opportunity to work with InstatData, a kiwi start-up which analyses social media posts to gauge New Zealanders’ opinions on particular issues. We put their technology to the test to focus on China and climate change, as an issue we suspected would reveal diverse public perceptions. And then we discussed the findings with New Zealander Emilly Fan, who is currently researching in this area in Beijing.
    Are New Zealanders’ impressions about China and climate change justified? How do younger Chinese feel about the issues? And what more could New Zealand and China do together to tackle this critical global challenge?
