Saturday 10th August: In April Maori Affairs Minister Dr Pita Sharples took Maori business leaders including Maori Trustee Jamie Tuuta and Federation of Maori Authorities chair Traci Houpapa to China to look for trade and investment. The fall-out from last week’s revelation that New Zealand’s largest company, Fonterra, let a tainted batch of whey out of one of its factories has led to China questioning whether it wants to do business with this country. In Kia Korero Mai, Eru Morgan talks to Gisborne mayor Meng Foon, who has Chinese whakapapa, about how Maori can continue to benefit from having a relationship with China.

Eru also talks China with business consultant Hinerangi Edwards, a director of one of Fonterra’s largest suppliers, Taranaki’s Parinihinihi Ki Waitotara Incorporation.

Sunday 11th August: Eru speaks with Labour’s Maori Affairs spokesperson Shane Jones, who fears the dairy giant’s mishandling of the situation will harm Maori businesses.

Korero Mai Ki Ahau a half hour features programme every Saturday and Sunday from noon, which takes an in – depth look at issues affecting te ao Maori. Totally in te reo Maori brought to you by Waatea News in association with Te Mangai Paho.
