When was the Chinese Poll Tax Heritage Trust established?

The New Zealand government established the Chinese Poll Tax Heritage Trust in 2004 with $5 million as a gesture of reconciliation in support of the formal apology. The Trust is a gesture of goodwill to the poll tax payers, their descendants and future generations in recognition of the hardship caused by the poll tax and other discriminatory legislation.

紐西蘭政府在2004年成立500萬紐幣的「華人人頭稅遺產信託基金」,當作正式道歉以外的和解姿態。這筆信託基金是向人頭稅納稅人、他們的後代子孫所表達的一種善意,補償人頭稅和其他不公平法規對他們造成的痛苦。
