The purpose of Te Hononga-ā-Kiwa is to increase Māori business capability and awareness and to improve Māori business engagement in the Southeast Asia region. 'Te Hononga-ā-Kiwa' refers to the connections of people personified through the travels of the legendary voyager and explorer Kiwa through the pacific.
Te Hononga-ā-Kiwa provides the opportunity for tertiary Māori business students to be introduced to the business landscape in Southeast Asian countries. Students are guided by a Tuakana (mentor) and Māori businesses in exploring a particular Southeast Asia market.
The 2019 programme will take place in Vietnam, find out more and apply here.
