Southern Lens - The PM's Visit

by Peter Newport - Jun 26, 2020

It's a rare occasion when a Prime Minister makes a visit to the Southern Lakes, so we spent time with Jacinda Ardern today trying to decode what the visit represented. Here's our Southern Lens perspective - the hype, the politics, the emotion, how we define tourism and diversification - and yes, we did ask about that $10 million dollars to A J Hackett.
