Local Government Conference 2018. Minister's speech
The Minister of Local Government, Hon Nanaia Mahuta, spoke at the Local Government New Zealand Conference, 17 July 2018. I am pleased that the Minister of Finance and Climate Change have preceded my presentation because you will appreciate that we are thinking about the big challenges ahead as we respond to pressures for growth, protecting and enhancing our environment, strengthening our resilience and ensuring that all our people can contribute to and share in the prosperity of our country, people, cities and communities. We are on a journey which in my mind requires us to work differently and in a way that builds a critical partnership and takes account of our respective roles at central and local government levels.
