Grant Robertson has been appointed Finance Spokesman for the NZ Labout Party. He later issued a statement saying the Government's challenge was to support an economy delivering good, sustainable jobs paying decent wages. “It’s time the economy delivered for all New Zealanders, not just the fortunate few," he said. “The economy should work for people, not the other way around. I will campaign for reform to monetary policy, savings and the tax system to ensure a fair go for all, with people put first," he said.
