Regional Economic Development Minister Shane Jones says Māori will be critical to keeping relationships with China on an even keel.

Mr Jones was the guest speaker at last night's meeting of the Chinese New Zealand Chamber of Commerce, and he was joined by a number of Māori business people including Māori Tourism head Pania Tyson Nathan.

He says it's important New Zealand as a sovereign nation looks after its security, but it is a must also to seek economic opportunities if it is to thrive.

Māoridom has long experience managing relationships while being in a state of conflict.

"I mean the whole history of Māoridom in New Zealand is managing conflict between ourselves and the power culture and I think Māoridom has a lot to offer in terms of how we move forward, navigate and overcome the current challenges in terms of the growing power, the growing role of China," Mr Jones says.
