The 2020 Annual General Meeting of the Latin America New Zealand Business Council Incorporated was held via videoconference on Thursday 21 May 2020 at 5.00 pm.
In presenting the Board with the 2019 Annual Report, LANZBC President Simon O’Connor commented on a fruitful year, highlighting a series of successful events like August’s luncheon with the Minister of Trade and Economic Growth, Hon David Parker. Simon also welcomed the new members that joined the LANZBC throughout the year and thanked the members of the Board and the Executive Officer for their work, which allowed the LANZBC to provide a range of events, contacts and information designed to foster business links between New Zealand and Latin America. Thanks were also extended to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade and the Latin America Centre for Asia-Pacific Excellence for their contributions to the LANZBC Website Update and the establishment of the LANZBC Young Professionals Network, respectively.
LANZBC Treasurer Peter McMenamin presented the Financial Statements for the year ended 31 December 2019, commenting that it was a strong year for the council in terms of finances. The LANZBC saw an increase in revenue from subscriptions and events in comparison to the previous year and additional funding was received for the Website Update and the LANZBC Young Professionals Network. This good performance will allow the LANZBC to carry cash reserves into 2020 that will enable it to face the challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic.
