$46mil investment into Northland jobs, housing, businesses

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern today announced a $46 million investment package for Northland to develop jobs, housing and businesses in the region.

Flanked by an array of high-profile Māori Members of Parliament including Winston Peters, Nanaia Mahuta, Kelvin Davis and Shane Jones, Ardern reiterated her commitment to the Tai Tokerau Northland Economic Action Plan - saying it had contributed to bringing down the region's unemployment by 3% in 2017.
