Poll: What do you think of the Provincial Growth Fund?

Denise Piper Reporter from Northern News

This week Northland got another $30m in loans and grants from the Provincial Growth Fund (PGF), which aims to improve infrastructure and create jobs in the regions. But Labour is now saying it will axe the fund if re-elected, while New Zealand First says the $3b fund has done wonders this term. What do you think? Please explain your answers in the comments below.

This degree changed my life!

Te Whare Wānanga o Awanuiārangi

Te Tohu Toi Tangata - Bachelor of Humanities

Meet Christina Nuku who graduated with majors in Indigenous Studies and Policy. Through Awanuiārangi, Christina experienced a 3-month exchange programme at the University of Northern British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada. She shares “the exchange connected me with the Nisga’a people, First Nations tribal systems, communities and hauora programmes. It informed my studies and opened my mind. It was a genuine privilege to connect with the tangata whenua there, and an opportunity I would never otherwise have had”

“The difference at Awanuiārangi is the whanaungatanga. Our kaiako cultivated a supportive and nurturing environment”. Study remotely with us in 2021!
