Section One – Andrew’s Approach
Tēnā Koutou Katoa.
Thank you so much for the opportunity to address you this morning.
These breakfasts are an important meeting place for leaders and thinkers in modern New Zealand. It’s a real honour to speak today.
I want to give you an idea of the direction of the Government I will lead, and the type of Prime Minister I hope to be.
It won’t surprise you that I think we need to make big changes to the direction of our country.
Some of the most basic aspirations that New Zealanders hold are becoming harder to achieve.
New Zealanders don’t ask the world. But we do have high hopes for our families, and there are some things we see defining our unique place in the world.
Most of all, what Kiwis want is a chance to work hard and build a secure future for ourselves and our families.
That’s what my parents were able to do.
