Partial sale of SOE's

Just a reminder that this is our actual Maori Party policy on sale of State Owned Assets:

"We do not support asset sales.  

If privatisation of state owned assets occurs it must be managed in a manner that is consistent with Te Tiriti o Waitangi.  The Maori Party will support iwi who wish to invest into state owned assets as a means of retaining New Zealand ownership".

While we are on this kaupapa, we are also absolutely against the sale of our land and strategic assets to foreign owners.

We would advocate for the inclusion of a Treaty clause in to the Overseas Investment Act to ensure that tangata whenua have first right of refusal on any land or strategic assets up for sale.
