KUCHING - The newly-appointed New Zealand High Commissioner to Malaysia, Mr Geoff Randal, visited Kuching on 21 August and attended the New Zealand Food Fair organised by the Sarawak Chapter of the Malaysia-New Zealand Business Council.

The fair is being held in Merdeka Palace every Thursday night throughout August. Response has been tremendous, with the fair fully booked every night. The fair will end on August 28 during which a lucky draw will be held.

The first prize in the lucky draw is a return air ticket to New Zealand sponsored by Air New Zealand and Tourism New Zealand. The other sponsors are Supreme Cold Storage Sdn Bhd and Choice Daily, major local importers of New Zealand food. "This food fair is an excellent opportunity to promote the excellent quality of New Zealand food. New Zealand and Sarawak also enjoy quality relationship," remarked Randal.
