Aid, Trade and NZ's place in the world after COVID

THE political debate to attend prior to the election. Five major parties on stage and Tova O'Brien moderating. Sparks will fly!!

How has the pandemic changed New Zealand’s role in the world and in the Pacific?

Our economic recovery depends on our ability to trade. But closed borders, broken supply chains and an already damaged global system will test New Zealand’s success.

Aid to the Pacific has increased, as Island nations call for a ‘bubble’ with New Zealand and aid to help rebuild economies dependent on tourism. Extreme poverty in hotspots across the world is on the rise again with COVID lockdowns. What is New Zealand’s humanitarian role now?

And can we remain neutral in the power struggles between the United States and China?

Tova O'Brien moderates with:

David Parker (Labour)

Simon Bridges (National)

Fletcher Tabuteau (New Zealand First)

James Shaw (Green) 

David Seymour (ACT)
