The Premier, Sir Toke Talagi, is to visit New Zealand Foreign Minister Winston Peters this week and he said his government wanted to discuss future capital funding, with a focus on infrastructure, such as the power and water systems, and the island's roads.

He said Niue's infrastructure was old and needed replacement.

Sir Toke said New Zealand prime minister Jacinda Ardern was planning a visit to the island later in the year.
