Wellington Chapter

About the Chapter

Since its creation in 1985, the French New Zealand Chamber of Commerce has been operating in Auckland. In 2020 we have decided to expand to the Capital, getting closer to a part of our membership and partners institutions, but also increasing our reach in New Zealand.

About Wellington

Wellington has been the nation's capital since 1865. As well as the New Zealand Government and Parliament, the Supreme Court, and most of the public service, a central business district is based in the city. 

The city is also home to several of the largest and oldest cultural institutions in the nation and is one of the world's most liveable cities, (the 2016 Mercer Quality of Living Survey ranked Wellington 12th in the world, and was first in the world for both liveability and non-pollution by Deutsche Bank, from 2017–18).
