2010 was the Year of the Tiger and on the eve of the Chinese New Year, Asia Downunder roving reporter Bharat Jamnadas shows the strength of the Auckland Chinese community by visiting festivities held at two extremely well-attended events on the same day: ASB Showgrounds in Auckland and the TelstraClear Pacific Events Centre in Manukau. There are interviews with Chinese community leaders who discuss the long history of Chinese New Year celebrations in Auckland, and footage of event highlights, including the world famous Hunan acrobat troupe.

A large number of us are descendants of the Poll Tax payers and what is pleasing now about this event is that it gives exposure to those who were born in New Zealand – the subsequent generations – exposure to Chinese culture.
– Arthur Loo, Chairman of the Auckland Chinese Community
