After five years of growth, New Zealand's primary exports are heading for a drop in 2021 - but with a bounce back predicted in 2022.
Meanwhile, overseas-based, synthetic horse racetrack layers are deemed essential and have been allowed entry into NZ?
Could this have anything to do with a certain senior (in more than one sense of the word) cabinet minister’s passion for the gee-gees and bottom-line demands?
Meanwhile, the current Government has also allowed international America’s Cup sailors and even movie makers dispensation to come to NZ – but not agricultural contractors. It’s apparent that the current Government, and its friends, see more value in horse racing, sailing and movies than our vital agricultural sector.
