New Zealand Embassy Paris, France
New Zealand has had a long tradition of contact with France in the creative arts, music, dance, and on the sports field, leading to the conclusion in 1977 of a bilateral Cultural Agreement. Many scientific, educational, sporting, and cultural exchanges now take place with France and France’s Pacific territories each year. French continues to be one of the most widely taught foreign languages in New Zealand, and linguistic and cultural links attract large numbers of New Zealanders to France, New Caledonia, and French Polynesia.
