Mixed reactions to NZ Budget initiatives for Pacific people

From , 5:01 am on 3 June 2019

A range of initiatives for Pacific people were announced in the New Zealand Budget on Thursday.

This Wellbeing Budget included increases in funding for Pacific health, education, language and economic development.

While the Ministry of Pacific Peoples has hailed it as an unprecedented support package for Pacific people, there is concern that it doesn't go far enough to address issues in the community.
