The Government has announced a review of regulations and red tape surrounding business.
The problem is not identifying the issues – there have been numerous reports and reviews in the last few years on this. They have largely all been ignored and not implemented by the Government.
However to be fair, there is a new Minister now in Lianne Dalziel and she is regarded as being somewhat more in touch with business needs than say Margaret Wilson was, and more able to influence Cabinet than John Tamihere was. So Dalziel may be able to achieve something useful, and I hoep she does.
