Anderton Speech to Rodney Business
Jim Anderton Speech to Rodney Business at Ascension Vineyard
It's hard not to be impressed with the rate of growth around the Rodney District.
I know it brings its own challenges. But in many ways, the speed of Rodney's growth is something of an example to the rest of New Zealand.
Only a growing economy can offer opportunities into the future for families moving here.
For Rodney, and for New Zealand, we need a vibrant economic base of sound businesses, providing good jobs. We need to build a local economy that is capable of maximising its earnings from the rest of the world.
