Deputy Prime Minister Winston Peters announced that the NZ government will support the broad public sector for the government of Niue with funding worth $13 million over the next five years.

Niue is the third and final destination of the delegation’s Pacific tour this week. During the visit, the New Zealand delegation held high-level talks with Niue’s political leaders, travelled onboard a New Zealand-funded search and rescue vessel; and spent time at Niue High School discussing how students envision its future in the next half century

“New Zealand and Niue share a unique bond, forged over 50 years of free association,” Mr Peters says.

“We are looking forward to working together to continue advancing Niue’s human and economic development.”

Mr Peters, who also attended Niue’s 25th anniversary of self-government in 1999, says it is a pleasure to return to Niue for the 50th anniversary with a broad political delegation from New Zealand.

“We are determined to build the capacity of Niue’s public sector, including by funding critical roles within key government departments and strengthening its public financial management systems,” Mr Peters says.
