Shared links with Asian cultures revealed by Māori survey

Māori believe they have shared cultural views and values with many Asian countries and think New Zealand would benefit from closer ties through tourism, education and the arts, a national survey has found.

Māori see particularly strong similarities with Asia in areas such as respect for elders, hospitality customs and responsibilities defined by family and social relationships.

The survey was commissioned by the Asia New Zealand Foundation as part of research into Māori engagement with Asia. The organisation provides grants and internships for NZ students to work and study in Asian countries.
