Team New Zealand win good for economy

Sport and Recreation Spokesperson


26 August 2013 MEDIA STATEMENT

Team New Zealand win good for economy
Team New Zealand winning the Louis Vuitton Cup challenger series in San Francisco will raise New Zealand’s profile in the United States and Europe, and boost our economy, Labour’s Sport and Recreation spokesperson Trevor Mallard says.

“The design team behind Team New Zealand is a high-tech brains trust. It is probably the best design team in the country and exactly the type of innovation the Government should be supporting.”

“Team New Zealand has raised offshore all but the $36 million allocated by the previous government and the resulting PAYE and GST means that New Zealand has had massive publicity at no net cost to the taxpayer,” Trevor Mallard says.

Election Day: Make Sure You're A Part Of It!

Saturday 20 September, is election day, and New Zealanders’ last chance to have a say on who leads the country for the next three years.

“The people and parties we elect tomorrow will be making the decisions that affect us, our families and our communities,” says Robert Peden, Chief Electoral Officer. “It doesn’t get much more important than that, and we need all New Zealanders to use their voice and vote.”

Voting places will be open from 9.00am until 7.00pm on election day. The busiest time at voting places is usually 9.00am - 11.00am.

“Take your EasyVote card with you when you go to vote, as it will make voting faster and easier, and vote close to home if you can. But don’t worry if you forget your card, or didn’t receive one, because as long as you are enrolled to vote, your voice will be heard,” says Mr Peden. More>>
