NZUSA China Delegation 1976

Applications are now being called for inclusion in the delegation to visit the People's Republic of China in early July, departing from Wellington and returning to Auckland.

This delegation will consist of 24 students and will visit five cities including Kwangchow, Shanghai and Peking. The delegation will enter and leave China via Hong Kong.

The criteria for the selection committee is:
1.Candidates need not be highly informed about, nor in ideological sympathy with Chinese society, but they must be keen to learn about Chinese society and take an open minded and honest approach towards China.
2.Candidates must be willing and able to freely converse about the nature of New Zealand society.
3.The selection committee will be looking for people who can cooperate with other members of the party and who are capable of making group decisions.
4.Candidates should be willing and able to write and generally share their impressions of the People's Republic of China on their return to New Zealand.
5.Candidates should take an active interest in student affairs.

The estimated cost is $1300, and as in the past NZUSA will assist members in the raising of funds.

There will be a compulsory attendance at an orientation at Queen's Birthday weekend (5-7 June). All enquiries are welcome and further information can be got from the International Vice-president of NZUSA, Box 6368, Te Aro, Wellington, phone 856-669.
