Get the right things right

Lifting productivity and driving export growth is the focus of the (New Zealand) National Party's primary sector policy, says Agriculture spokesman David Carter.

"A key plank is increased water storage and irrigation, and National recently announced that it will provide up to $400 million from the Future Investment Fund to support the construction of well-designed irrigation schemes.

"Water is one of New Zealand's greatest competitive advantages, but we are not making the most of it. Developing water storage and irrigation has huge potential to unlock economic growth and prosperity for the primary sectors, and for all New Zealanders."
