I see you have invited the same keynote speakers to Christchurch as were invited to WasteMINZ in Auckland last year. Brian and I should be flattered that we have been given the opportunity of an encore. I notice that our order of speaking has been changed.

* A year later and what’s changed? Well I have.

This has been a commonly held view of our land for a long time. It has been reflected to us by visitors from abroad and used in the promotion of our tourism industry and our products.
