Mr Tan was part of a 70 strong Chinese delegation which arrived in Queenstown this morning (12 April) and was among ten VIPS hosted at Millbrook for lunch and golf on the new Coronet Nine.

Millbrook Resort General Manager David Onions said he was delighted to have the opportunity to showcase Queenstown and New Zealand for the delegation.

“Millbrook Resort showed its true colours today and the delegates loved the surroundings, the natural environment and of course the superb golf courses on offer.  We are very much looking forward to hosting Chinese visitors to New Zealand as the new China Southern Airlines direct service opens our country to this market.”
