Governor-General visits Taranaki

The Governor-General of New Zealand, Hon Sir Anand Satyanand, and Lady Satyanand, will travel to Taranaki next week for the start of a three day regional visit.

During their visit, they will visit schools, business and community groups from throughout Taranaki as well as attending the Taranaki Rhododendron and Garden Festival.

The Governor-General said he was looking forward to visiting Taranaki.

“While we have visited Taranaki to attend specific events in the past, this will be the most detailed visit to date. From the summit of Mt Taranaki and the Egmont National Park to its agricultural and mineral wealth, Taranaki has a unique and diverse landscape, economy and a deep history. We are looking forward to meeting the people of the region and learning more of Taranaki’s plans for the future.”
