Fran O’Sullivan wants the Government to list what is and is not a strategic asset. I agree this must be done, so people know which set of rules apply to them. Regardless of your views on Auckland Airport, you probably agree it is not desirable for the rules to be changed halfway through a sale.
At the forum last night on how to “super-size” the economy, there was a lot of discussion on how we need more investment in NZ – in infrastructure, in businesses, in research & development etc. Investment helps us grow. But there will be less investment if the status of certain companies and/or assets are not known.
