Thank you all for the opportunity to speak with you today and to talk about the future of rail in Aotearoa New Zealand.

Mr President, fellow delegates. I bring you special greetings from New Zealand’s Prime Minister, the Rt Hon Jacinda Ardern, on the centenary of the ILO.

It is an honour to be here with you today to launch Te Whare Ohaoha, the Waikato Region Māori Economic Development Action Plan Refresh.

We need to transform the settings and the framework of the education system. But we must also support the people within the education system. That is what restarting Te Kotahitanga was about.

New Zealanders are increasingly concerned about the environmental impacts of waste.

“Kara Puketapu began to call iwi representatives to Wellington: Tribal leaders, old and young, men and women, from each of the ten districts of Māoridom … We got into what I call organic policies—policies that actually came up from the people … Out of all that dynamic was born Te Kōhanga Reo.“

Firstly, thank you to our Singaporean hosts for your warm hospitality, and the International Institute for Strategic Studies for the invitation to speak on a topic very important to New Zealand.

It is always a pleasure to speak to an audience of people actively involved in caring for our environment.

It is a pleasure to be here tonight to make a small announcement which plays a part in what was a very large announcement made in the Budget yesterday.

Thank you to Grant Thornton for the invitation to address you here today about the ‘Wellbeing Budget’ and what it will mean for New Zealand businesses.

We said that we would be a Government that did things differently, and for this Budget we have done just that. Today we have laid the foundation for not just one Wellbeing Budget, but a different approach for Government decision-making all together.

From the day we took office, this Government has committed to putting the wellbeing of current and future generations of New Zealanders at the heart of everything we do. Budget 2019 shows we are delivering on that commitment.

As you know, the Coalition Government’s first Wellbeing Budget will be unveiled in less than a week. I know you will all have heard a lot of talk about it and now it’s a reality. It’s a reality because while economic growth is important – and something we will continue to pursue – it alone does not guarantee improvements to New Zealanders’ living standards.

Tēnā koutou katoa, fa’atalofa atu, malo e lelei, greetings to you all. 

E nga mana, e nga iwi, e nga reo, e nga karangaranga maha, tena koutou katoa. Oute manatu o lea ua savini fa’apunaomanu lo tatou mafutaga. O lupe sa vaoeseese ae o lenei ua fuifuia fa’atasi ile alofa ma le agalelei ole tatou Atua Silisiliese. Malo le soifua manuia. Warm Pacific greetings to one and all.
