NZ in better shape, says Key

Saturday 17 Nov 2012 1:51 p.m.

When Prime Minister John Key launched National Party's campaign before last year's election, he promised a brighter future for all New Zealanders.

In October 2011, he said New Zealand was starting to grow and was "bedding" in a recovery.

A year later, the Opposition says the brighter future is looking a little tarnished, with a swag of statistics showing our economy isn't moving forward. Some suggest it is about to go backwards.

Mr Key told TV3’s The Nation he has left New Zealand in a better shape than he found it when he became the Prime Minister, citing New Zealand’s “falling crime rate, right through to increasing education levels”.

Mr Key says Reserve Bank figures, which show growth slowing from 2013 after the boost of the Christchurch rebuild, should be taken “with a grain of salt”.

He also defended the Government’s performance on youth unemployment.
