About the New Zealand / France Friendship Fund [fr]
The New Zealand / France Friendship Fund was established under an Agreement signed by the Prime Ministers of France and New Zealand on 29 April 1991.
On the French side, the current president of the committee is Mr Dominique Girard. The other French members are Mr Erick Acker, Mr Pierre Furlan and Lorraine Rodier. On the NZ side, the president is Mr Richard Long, assisted by Richard Baker and Sarah Dennis.
