7 February Meeting

  • Rotarian John Vujcich is also a Far North District Councillor and chairs the council's Corporate (Finance) Committee. Last November John and Deputy Mayor Tania McInnes travelled to China in a visit designed to improve economic and trading links between our district and the world's most populous nation.

  • John told Kaikohe Rotary that because of the political sensitivities of the visit both he and Tania travelled cattle class, unlike the 20-strong delegation from Auckland Council who went just before and went first class. Yet FNDC's trip hit the headlines, whereas Auckland's slipped by largely unnoticed by the media.

  • In Beijing John was pleasantly surprised by an apparent absence of air pollution, but there was little time to go sightseeing, with most days full up with meetings with executives from state-owned businesses. John and Tania were joined by Far North holdings' chief executive Andy Nock.

  • Outside the meetings, the kiwi visitors toured the Forbidden City and the Great Wall of China, which John says is very steep and walking it is hard work - but an experience not to be missed.
