Our new “Antarctic Office” is all about Christchurch asserting its role as an Antarctic gateway city. This encompasses us all – challenging what the city does currently and aspiring to be the partner of choice for international science, logistics, business and engagement. In turn, this will strengthen our country’s diplomatic and geopolitical ambitions in Antarctica and the Southern Ocean.
