CHINESE NEW YEAR MARKET DAY 2020

2020 Chinese New Year Festival and Market Day

by David Tai

The annual ACCC Chinese New Year Festival and Market Day was held once again at the ASB Showgrounds.  It was held earlier this year than previous years, on Saturday 18 January 2020.  This year’s event was the most financially successful one that ACCC has ever had, with more sponsors and over 20,000 attendees to welcome the Year of the Golden Rat.

ACCC chose to co-host this year’s event with NZCM Media Group for the second time, This new partnership has proven to be a very successful mix.  NZCM Media Group attracted some new sponsorship and provided media support to promote the event.

Prime Minister Rt Hon Jacinda Ardern arrived at the event around 9.45am to open the event. The Prime Minister and China Ambassador dotted eyes of two lions before Peter Low's E- Pacs team performed the traditional lion dance in front of the crowds congregated outside the main entrance of the ASB Show Buildings. The official opening continued inside the concert hall with speeches from dignatories such as the Prime Minister, Simon Bridges (Leader of Opposition), Phil Goff (Auckland Mayor) and representatives of our Platinum sponsors.  This year, the event was also honoured to have the Ambassador of Peoples Republic of China, her Excellency Xi Wu, to speak at the event for the first time.

Planning of this event began as soon as the 2019 event finished.  This planning was led by the ACCC Chairman. Kai Luey with behind the scene help from David Tai, John Kum and John Ling. Sales of the stalls began in July 2019 and indoor stalls were sold out by November 2019, Setting up of the halls on the Friday before the big day was much easier this year because of the many ACCC Sport Club volunteers were able to turn up because school had not started.

The ACCC Executive Committee turned up on the great day and gave their full support to make the event a very successful one.

ACCC would like to acknowledge the valuable support from our new co-hosts, our many generous sponsors, stallholders, entertainers and volunteers in making the 2020 CNY Festival & Market Day another extremely successful occasion.

ACCC SCHOLARSHIPS 2019/ 2020

A new initiative for ACCC will be the introduction of the ACCC Scholarship beginning 2019.

Our Community Centre has enjoyed the support, finance or work groups or service of many long serving members throughout the years. In the last few years, our focus has been to refurbish and upgrade the Mangere facility. We now have a modern facility of which we are proud of, and hopefully utilised by lots of interest groups, including our Chinese School from 2019.

ACCC acknowledges the importance of the continuity of our organisation for future generation and the need to develop committed members who will remain within this organization and lead it into its future. The Executive Committee, under the guidance of Chairman Kai Luey, has established scholarships that will both recognise committed member's contribution to the ACCC and their academic achievements and help them to achieve their academic goals so they can develop into future leaders of the organisation.

Rather than a one-off payment to successful awardee(s), it is worthy to note the significance we have placed in "continuity" and "the future". Therefore, we are prepared to support scholars through their tertiary journey, whether it is three or four years. In tandem with our Undergraduate studies Category 1 scholarships ($1000 per year), we have also introduced a Post-Graduate studies Category 2 scholarship. A Category 2 scholar will receive $3000 for each year he(she) is eligible.

Information including criteria and application form are on our ACCC website. Applications for 2020 will be opened from 01 January 2020 and closes on 31 March 2020. The successful scholars will be advised prior to the ACCC Annual Dinner.
