We’re investing in the regions - Jacinda Ardern


The policies and priorities of our new government have been released.

Prime Minister Elect Jacinda Ardern joined The AM Show this morning to talk about the new government.

“The agreement that was released yesterday is simply the things that New Zealand First, as part of their agreement, wanted to place emphasis on.

Our policy platform, the one that we campaigned on, unless otherwise stated in that document remains exactly the same.

Ms Ardern says the new coalition will have a clear strategy moving ahead.

“We’re going to focus on increasing our exports. We’re going to focus on making sure we’re investing in the regions. We’re going to have decent jobs and decent wages, and we’re going to protect our environment and make sure New Zealanders are getting a fair shot.”

The AM Show with Duncan Garner, Amanda Gillies and Mark Richardson, weekdays 6-9am on RadioLIVE and streaming live to the ROVA app on Android and iPhone.
