Meanwhile, the backbone of New Zealand's economy, small businesses, will need a jump start to help the country's economy get moving again - that is something both government and the opposition agree on.

National says if elected, it will give businesses a $10,000-cash bonus each time they hire more staff.

Party leader Todd Muller announced the JobStart scheme after a tour of the furniture fittings company Blum in Auckland on Friday afternoon.

Amy Williams and video journalist Dan Cook were there and filed this report.
