A full house of over 70 people heard the Deputy Prime Minister and Finance Minister, Grant Robertson, tell us that we have performed pretty well given the challenges of this past year. All indicators put us in fairly good shape going forward.
He clearly indicated to the assembled audience at our first business breakfast for the year on 18 March that the roll out of the Covid vaccine and addressing the housing crisis with an emphasis on new builds for first home buyers were the Government’s top priorities.
The Minister fielded some very spirited questions on economic performance and priority spending issues.
