Industry organisations have united to seek assurance from Government about plans for ongoing financial support.
NZHOA has supported a letter to Prime Minister Jacinda Arden representing tourism, travel, aviation, hospitality and event sectors.

Temporary migrant workers will be better protected by new changes announced by Government designed to address exploitation.
