The delegation left New Zealand for Japan on the 14th January. Since arriving they have made an immediate impact, through their willingness to contribute to the programme, supporting others or just representing New Zealand in the best way they can. They departed Japan on the Nippon Maru on the 28th January, heading for Singapore, then Colombo, Sri Lanka and finally to Chennai, India. While on the ship they will be doing a National Presentation, a ‘Country Day’ (presenting New Zealand) and each member of the delegation will participate in a number of workshops. We wish them well on their journey and look forward to a summary of the programme on their return.
