Straterra welcomes Government plans

Straterra welcomes the Prime Minister’s address to Parliament today as a sensible, measured plan for progressing New Zealand’s economic development in a very challenging global market.

“Our industry has always supported Government’s drive to help business deliver more and higher-paying jobs for New Zealanders whilst protecting our environment.

“To attract the investment needed for these jobs we need a transparent, stable, fair and competitive regulatory regime and Mr Key’s comments today show the Government remains committed to make this happen,” says Straterra Chief Executive Officer, Chris Baker.

Over the coming year, Mr Key said the Government would remain focused on opportunities to use New Zealand’s natural resources productively while maintaining environmental standards that preserve and enhance the quality of our environment.

He said the Government is also pushing ahead with policy development in a number of areas that have in common the need for a better functioning system of planning and resource management – one that enables growth and provides strong environmental outcomes, and does so in a timely and cost-effective way.

“Straterra will do all it can to work with Government to achieve these outcomes,” Mr Baker says.

Surprise Exit: Gordon Campbell On The Key Resignation

The resignation of John Key is one thing. The way that Key and his deputy Bill English have screwed the scrum on the leadership succession vote (due on December 12) is something else again.
