Kungfu Masters from the Land of the Lord of the Rings

In the newly-signed FTA between China and New Zealand, NZ agreed to allow temporary entry of several categories of service providers into New Zealand. Among them are Chinese chefs and Martial Arts instructors. This is very interesting as the biggest obstacle for Chinese service providers are tedious visa procedures. In this regard, explicit commitments on temporary visas for certain sectors would make important inroads into further removal of significant discrimination against Chinese citizens prevalent in the immigration regimes of many developed countries.
