Two leaders in the Māori tourism sector have been appointed to the board of Tourism New Zealand.

Colleen Neville is chief executive of Te Arawa Group Holdings, which invests in the tourism, forestry, geothermal and agri-business sectors.

Kauahi Ngāpora is general manager of Whale Watch Kaikoura Ltd and has 25 years in the sector, including directorships at Tourism Industry Aotearoa and Whale Watch Australia and chairing Destination Kaikoura.

Tourism Minister Kelvin Davis says he as was looking for people with commercial tourism experience, particularly in the regions, a connection to Māori tourism operators, and strong financial acumen.

He also reappointed John Thorburn, Jamie Tuuta, and Jan Hunt for various terms, and extended the term of chair Kerry Prendergast to next March while future changes are considered.

Latest infant death being used in Oranga Tamariki propaganda campaign.
Martyn 'Bomber' Bradbury: I think the manner in which dead infants are being used to justify the deeply flawed child uplift policy by Oranga Tamariki is a new low in this depressing and increasingly ugly debate.
