In October 2000, the Auckland City Council organised the first Asian Forum to facilitate liaison and build rapport between various statutory and non-statutory agencies, and to raise awareness about issues faced by Asian peoples in the Auckland region. This event identified the need for a support network for Asian communities.
The Asian Network Steering Committee was established to respond to this need. The Committee consisted of members from different ethnic groups, predominantly from Asian communities. The Committee worked with clearly defined objectives to advocate on behalf of Asian communities and provide opportunities for Asian communities to be heard in the public arena.
