Map showing Tung Jung Association Building

Life in New Zealand in the 1920s was difficult for the Chinese.

There were many prejudices to overcome both socially and in business. In 1926 a group of progressive and far-sighted people from Jungsen and Tung Gwoon counties decided to form an association for mutual help in a country far from home.

Thus was born the NZ Tung Jung Association - the first Chinese community organisation to be established in New Zealand. The primary objective of the Association is to unite and maintain the identity and kinship of those who claim affinity to the counties of Jungsen and Tung Gwoon and their descendants.
