The China Capable Public Sector (CCPS) programme is a whole-of-government initiative to develop a China capable public sector with awareness, knowledge, experience, and leadership to engage effectively with China, both internationally and domestically.
This cross-agency programme is led Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade (MFAT) in strong partnership with agency leaders across the public sector. This investment is being made by agencies given the significance of New Zealand’s relationship with China, the opportunities this presents and the challenges that need to be managed. China is New Zealand’s second largest trading partner and is different from our traditional trading partners in many respects, including culture, language, and scale.
The CCPS works with the New Zealand Contemporary China Research Centre to deliver products, drawing from expertise across the public sector, business, academia, media and the Chinese diaspora community.
