Who are New Zealand's Asian people

According to the Ministry of Health “The definition of ‘Asian’ used in New Zealand is based on the categories used in the census, developed by Statistics New Zealand in 1996 (SNZ) (4). This group is made up of people with origins in the Asian continent from Afghanistan in the west to Japan in the east and from China in the north to Indonesia in the south."

The largest Asian ethnic group in Aotearoa New Zealand is Chinese, followed by Indian, Korean, Filipino, Japanese, Sri Lankan, Cambodian and Thai.
