No set script for Auckland Chamber of Commerce meeting with Chris Hipkins - Simon Bridges

From Morning Report, 7:13 am on 26 January 2023

The Auckland Chamber of Commerce says the biggest worry for businesses is inflation, as they prepare to meet with the new Prime Minister today.

Simon Bridges says that's especially true for small to medium firms.

He told Morning Report there's no set script for today's meeting with Chris Hipkins, and he expects there to be a free flowing discussion.

Bridges says the rate and size of increases to the minimum wage have also been hard for businesses to swallow.
