Pasifika festival to support smaller pacific communities

From Midday Report, 12:47 pm on 24 July 2020

One of the largest showcases of te Moana nui a kiwa - the Pasifika Fesitval - is undergoing a refresh for next year. It has been met with some criticism from smaller island villages, which feel frustrated with the proposed changes. Auckland Tourism, Events and Economic Development, which runs the event, says the proposal looks to support our smaller pacific communities through a revitalised village concept. Leisa Siteine the event production manager joins us.
