Mandarin speaking staff - an asset for NZ businesses
The New Zealand Herald reports that businesses are increasingly finding that staff who can speak mandarin is an asset as more Chinese tourists come to New Zealand and as China has increasingly become important as a market for New Zealand exports. ANZ Managing director of commercial and agriculture Mark Hiddleston said, "Speaking to Chinese customers in their own language enables New Zealand companies to communicate on a deeper, more informative level, as well as understanding the customers and their needs better."
