An MP in Niue wants New Zealand to support the realm to stand on its own two feet economically.

New Zealand Prime Minister Christopher Luxon has landed in Niue, on his first official visit to the Pacific after assuming office.

As RNZ Pacific's Lydia Lewis reports, the trip marks five decades since Niue made a decision to self-govern in free association with New Zealand.
