Speech

I would like to acknowledge the event organisers, Water New Zealand, and the event sponsors who have made it possible for us to be here today.

Speech

Korihi Pō, Korihi Ao
E rongo e turia no Matahau
Nō Tū te winiwini, Nō Tū te wanawana
Tū Hikitia rā, Tū Hapainga mai
Ki te Whai Ao, Ki te Ao Mārama
Tihei Mauri Ora!

Speech

It is a pleasure to welcome you here tonight, and certainly fitting that the first official visit New Zealand has hosted since COVID is from one of our closest and most special partners: the Cook Islands.
