The French New Zealand Chamber of Commerce was proud to celebrate with you its 35th anniversary on Thursday 10th October 2019 at Ellerslie Racecourse.

The ‘Paris at Night’  Gala Dinner brought together more than 250 distinguished guests to celebrate the ongoing strength of the partnership between the New Zealand and French business communities.

It's with great pleasure we welcomed:
