New Zealand First leader Winston Peters says its essential Māori needs are factored into plans for the economic recovery.

The Government is working out what needs to be done to stimulate the economic activity once the country moves out of the Level 4 COVID-19 lockdown.

The Deputy Prime Minister says everyone has to be included.

“Our job is to ensure that this recovery does not have awful ethnic disparities to it. We’ve got to make this recovery together because if we don’t, we cannot take Māoridom with us, it will be a disaster for our country, so we have to keep our minds on that. We’re in this together. We’ve got to make this comeback together. We can’t leave people out on the way back,” Mr Peters says.

He says it could also be a time to remind people to buy New Zealand, as locally-sourced products have a greater positive impact in the economy.
