February 6 marks the anniver-sary of the signing of Te Tiriti o Waitangi, the Treaty of Waitangi in 1840. This document signifies the enduring partnership between the New Zealand government and Maori, the indigenous people of New Zealand.

Waitangi Day is an opportunity for all Kiwis to reflect on the year that has been, and to look ahead to the future. In that spirit, I wanted to look back and look forward at New Zealand's partnership with Viet Nam through four photos.

Fashionistas: From the first fashion collaboration between Viet Nam and New Zealand based on the theme of "fusion" to two major alumni events for our NZ alumni, who are our life-long ambassadors for New Zealand in Viet Nam. So 2015 was a great celebration of 40 years of friendship between our two countries.

2015 was an exciting year in terms of political connections with the state visits of Prime Ministers in both directions.

Last but not least, we love to stay in touch with our audience in Viet Nam through our Facebook page:

New horizons: This year will be an equally exciting year, with the first ever direct flights commencing in June between New Zealand and Viet Nam.

As Tet approaches, I wish you and your families a prosperous, healthy and happy Year of the Monkey! — VNS
