Welcome to the Wellington Branch of the New Zealand China Friendship Society.

Wellington branch was founded in 1956.

Activities include monthly meetings featuring talks and activities about aspects of Chinese culture, current affairs and trade; and a major banquet each year at Chinese New Year. Monthly meetings are held at March to November on the third Wednesday at 6:30pm.

The Wellington Branch supports the Sister Cities link with Xiamen and Beijing, and keeps close contact with the other local Chinese associations, including supporting a weekly Mandarin Corner hosted by the Confucius Institute at Victoria University of Wellington.

A monthly newsletter is published with details of current activities.
