The China Capable Public Sector (CCPS) programme is a whole-of-government initiative to develop a China savvy public sector with China awareness, knowledge, experience, and leadership both internationally and domestically to engage effectively with China. This exciting initiative is led by MFAT in strong partnership with agency leaders across the public sector.

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.

CCPS aims to develop a China capable pool of talent, both onshore and offshore, through collaborative knowledge sharing forums that foster communities of interest, and open career pathways across agencies and the wider public sector.
