Stephen Joyce was interviewed on The Nation this morning - Plans to grow overseas investment face critics.
David Cunliffe promptly responded with a press release – Joyce on exports: great goal, glossy doesn’t measure up. He is naturally critical of what National are doing or not doing, including on the high value of our dollar:
“Labour understands that the number one concern of exporters nationwide is our punishingly high and volatile dollar. Steven Joyce simply kicked for touch on this issue, refusing constructive debate on monetary reform.
“Name calling won’t trump Labour’s sensible monetary policy proposals based on modern international reforms. ”
But he doesn’t offer any solutions.
I’ve asked him: What are Labour’s policy proposals on dealing with the value of our dollar?
