Collaboration and Cooperation key to India and NZ’s future International Education Success 
At the India New Zealand Business Council Education Roundtable, international education practitioners, business leaders and government stakeholders came together to examine opportunities and challenges for future growth in international education services between India and New Zealand.

Held in partnership with the University of Auckland, over 50 sector leaders gathered to identify key strategies that could help inform policymakers on both sides. 

The afternoon started with keynote addresses from Bhav Dhillion, Honorary Consul of India in Auckland, followed by Grant McPherson, CEO, Education New Zealand, Martin Hookham-Simms, Director of International Office, University of Auckland and Dr Vidya Yeravdekar, Chair-FICCI HE Committee & Pro Chancellor-Symbiosis International University, Pune.

The keynote speakers discussed India’s New Education Policy and how it impacted the international education landscape for both countries. 

They said the new policy, which aims to internationalise India’s education sector, provided a perfect opportunity for foreign providers to partner with Indian educational institutions. 

Grant McPherson added that greater collaboration and cooperation, through mutually beneficial partnerships, will be the key to exploring new synergies for future growth in bilateral education services between the two countries.

Martin Hookham-Simms, in his keynote address said New Zealand’s focus on Te Reo Māori principles such as manaakitanga gave it a distinctive advantage while approaching such partnership with India. 

Dr Vidya Yeravdekar who joined virtually from India, also emphasised the need to create mutually win-win partnerships for both countries. She said it was important to not only explore avenues for Indian students to study in NZ, but for New Zealand students to study short term in India, and to combine it with industry visits for added advantage.
