New Zealand Prime Minister Robert Muldoon made his first visit to China in 1976. His meeting with Chairman Mao Zedong was largely symbolic, as Mao was by this time too frail to carry out any serious diplomatic conversations. The more important negotiations occurred between Muldoon and Chinese Premier Hua Guofeng. It was the first visit by a New Zealand prime minister and followed on from the establishment of diplomatic relations between the two countries in 1972.
