New Zealand Embassy Warsaw, Poland


The Asia-Pacific Day in Polish Parliament on 9 July drew crowds. Members of Parliament, ministry representatives, academics and the diplomatic corps used the occasion to discuss the opportunities, developments and potential risks facing the region.

New Zealand and ANZAC Day

New Zealand’s involvement in the Gallipoli campaign was preceded by New Zealand’s pledging support for Britain and its allies after the declaration of war in August 1914.


​On a sunny 25 April 2015, we gathered at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Warsaw to commemorate the centenary of Anzac Day.  


The New Zealand Embassy, in cooperation with Forum Film Poland, recently organized the official Polish premiere of the “Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies” in Warsaw.


With only three weeks until Anzac 2015 celebrations begin, a moving transfer ceremony was held in Messines last Wednesday.  Soil from three of New Zealand's most iconic World War One western front battlefields in France and Belgium - Longueval (Somme), Messines and Passchendaele - was gifted to be displayed as part of the Great War Exhibition in Wellington.


New Zealand business interest in Poland is on the move, with the business sector increasingly aware of the size (nearly 40 million people) and upside of the increasingly affluent Polish market.
