Reducing Obstacles To Growth

The New Zealand Manufacturers Federation today launches the third in a series of integrated policy statements which, together, address issues of significance in the forthcoming elections.

Called “Reducing Obstacles to Growth” today’s statement deals with the issue of what central Government can do to enhance New Zealand’s competitiveness.

Copies of “Reducing Obstacles to Growth” are in the mail to members of the Federation, Parliamentarians, the media and other opinion leaders.

Over the next few weeks the rest of the Manifesto package will be released. These deal with R&D, employment, trade and local government.

Simon Carlaw, Chief Executive of the Manufacturers Federation will be available for comment as each statement is released. He can be contacted on: 04 473-3000 (bus) or 04 476-7729 (pvt).

Copies of the statements will be available on ManFed’s web-site as they are released.
