'Eyes wide open' on Chinese influence in NZ - Winston Peters

From Morning Report, 7:29 am on 4 December 2018

An American thinktank - Stanford University's Hoover Institution - has criticised New Zealand for not doing enough to counter Chinese influence in its internal affairs. A report from the institute argues that New Zealand is particularly vulnerable to pressure because China is the country's second largest trading partner and a critical market for two of its most important sectors, tourism and milk products. Winston Peters is Foreign Affairs Minister and Acting Prime Minister. He talks to Guyon Espiner.
