Hong Kong buyers chase NZ farms
As populations rise and resources dwindle, we will see a lot more interest, in the Asian economies, in buying substantial chunks of New Zealand. These farms will then become Chinese, Japanese and Korean farms — in effect, parts of China, Japan and Korea — and will produce food for the folks back home. I don't think New Zealanders have grasped the possible implications of this.
