The EMA’s Chinese Business Centre was established to help provide EMA members with access to expertise on doing business successfully in New Zealand, as well as supporting members interested in doing business with or in China.  

There have been many legislative changes in employment law in recent times, and the EMA’s AdviceLine can help you understand these changes, what they mean for your business, what policies you need to have in place, and how to handle any issues with employees. 

The EMA also has a strong voice with central and local government, to highlight your concerns and influence policy you believe is necessary to ensure your business is successful and can thrive. 

Chinese businesses who are members of the EMA have access to the services listed below, and can also use the Chinese Business Centre. This is a co-working and knowledge-sharing space that is part of the EMA Partner Hub, and is managed by a Mand​arin-speaking EMA employee. Members also have access to a range of networking opportunities. 

A Chinese Advisory Board helps to ensure the EMA knows what Chinese businesses need most from its services. 

EMA services include:

Giving Chinese communities and business groups a voice through private briefings with central and local government and top business leaders; 
Establishing business relationships between Chinese and New Zealand members to extend business networks and help facilitate cultural understanding; 
Communicate and facilitate industry forums, conferences and events in both New Zealand and China, which support the business interests of members in both countries; 
Unlimited employment advice through our Employment and HR AdviceLine  
Access to the EMA member website which contains more than 100 business-related documents such as employment agreements, Health & Safety (H&S) guidelines and probationary period clauses; 
Quarterly member briefings to update businesses on changes to legislation affecting them, and progress on advocacy; 
Discounted legal and consultant representation for services in employment law, HR management, H&S and ACC;  
Member-only rates for business training; 
In conjunction with Export NZ, assisting all members looking to expand into Chinese markets;
