KUCHING: The new New Zealand High Commissioner Geoff Randall during his visit here on Aug. 21 and 22, launched the Centre's website www.nzcentre.biz.

The NZ Centre is at Jalan Utama in the Pending industrial estate.

The centre's website provides updated information on education and business on New Zealand and Sarawak. It provides regular updates on matters related to New Zealand and the region.

One of the features of the website is that the updates are regularly done almost every few hours. The website also provides information on studying in New Zealand universities, institutions and schools.

NZ Centre is not only an official representative in Malaysia for New Zealand universities, it also represents a number of reputable institutes of technology and high quality schools in that country.

Randall, during his visit to NZ Centre, said he was impressed with his first visit to Sarawak and on the strength and quality of connections which exists between Sarawak and New Zealand.

He also said he found the high level of enthusiasm that Sarawakians have with New Zealand, including Sarawak New Zealand Graduates Association (SNZGA), the Malaysia New Zealand Business Council MNZBC-Sarawak) and the centre.

Randall was on an introductory visit to Sarawak. During his visit, he called on the Yang di-Pertua Negeri, Tun Datuk Patinggi Abang Haji Muhammad Salahuddin; the Chief Minister, Datuk Patinggi Tan Sri Haji Abdul Taib Mahmud; Tourism Minister Datuk Sri Abang Johari Tun Openg and Social Development and Urbanisation Minister Datuk Sri Dr. James Masing. Masing later hosted a lunch to welcome the High Commissioner on behalf of the state government.
