Thanks for following up. The event did seem to go well and certainly provided a great
opportunity for sharing informing and experiences on regulatory reforms. As expected, there
was a strong focus on the role of technology as a key enabler along with policy and legislative
reforms to align and improve regulatory regimes.
I would be happy to meet with the Beijing delegation in February if that goes ahead.
And please pass on my thanks to Ambassador Fearnley, Lucy Coghill and her embassy colleagues
for hosting us so well during our visit. It was a pleasure working with them.

meeting with the Ministry of Natural Resources delegation - they were appreciative of the
chance to meet LINZ, and engagements like that really help to support the bilateral relationship.
I would be interested to hear your thoughts on how the event went, as would Ambassador
Fearnley (who plans to go and introduce herself to the Ministry of Natural Resources soon).
Following the conference in Beijing, the Beijing City Government would like to visit New Zealand
in mid-February to do an Ease of Doing Business study tour. The tour would comprise of 15
technical experts, possibly with World Bank staffers too. We wanted to scope whether you or
someone else at LINZ would be open to meeting with the delegation for say an hour or so, to
answer some of the questions they may have following your presentation up in Beijing. We
would try to get the questions they have for you in advance, and would be there to support the
We feel this Ease of Doing Business work-stream with China is really gaining traction, and would
love to work more with LINZ on it, but appreciate you are busy with other commitments to
manage too. If you could let us know your willingness to meet with this group from Beijing in
mid-February by the end of Thursday
, that would be much appreciated (but no pressure
