Social media, music behind NZers' growing knowledge of Asia

From Morning Report, 7:47 am on 10 July 2019

Social media and pop music are being credited with a marked increase in New Zealanders' overall awareness and knowledge of Asia.

The annual Asia New Zealand Foundation survey shows the number who say they know a fair amount about Asia has risen from a third five years ago to 48 percent.

The foundation says a lot of the change is being driven by the under-30s, and they're passing on that better understanding to older generations.
