Meet Wu Hongbo, a graduate from China

Wu Hongbo, the United Nations Under-Secretary-General for Economic and Social Affairs, says his experience of studying in New Zealand has been instrumental to his career.

My wonderful time in New Zealand is very important in my professional career. Without the two years of advanced training and extensive experience in this beautiful country, I could not have been where I am today.

Wu Hongbo has previously served as China’s Ambassador to the Philippines. He says Chinese students of the time were taught and guided every step of the way, while students in New Zealand “had more freedom to decide when and how to study”.

Wu Hongbo carried out his postgraduate study at Victoria University’s English Language Institute in Wellington. He says his time in New Zealand not only improved his English language abilities but also broadened his vision, knowledge and capability.

I would like to say to those who wish to choose New Zealand that New Zealand is a wonderful country to pursue your academic study. Just to meet the friendly people in a beautiful country is already an unforgettable lifelong experience.

"Go to New Zealand – you will never regret your choice!”
