Government unveils next action plan for New ZealandPrime Minister Christopher Luxon announces new measures.

Prime Minister Christopher Luxon has revealed the government's upcoming action plan, outlining essential steps to be implemented by June 30 with the aim of revitalising the economy, reinstating law and order, and enhancing public services.

“I am proud to lead a government of action. We are delivering big changes that are already making a real difference to the lives of New Zealanders,” Mr Luxon states.

The plan addresses three key areas: rebuilding the economy and alleviating the cost of living, restoring law and order, and providing improved public services.

Mr Luxon emphasised the importance of having a clear plan with specific actions and timeframes for delivery, creating momentum and driving focus.

The commitments in the action plan include delivering a budget that reduces wasteful spending while investing in frontline services, providing tax relief to hardworking New Zealanders, setting targets for improving public services, launching an Attendance Action Plan to encourage school attendance, restoring Three Strikes to hold serious, repeat offenders accountable, establishing a Regional Infrastructure Fund to boost economic growth, and reforming the CCCFA regime to make it easier for home-buyers to access credit.

“Much of the action plan is focused on rebuilding the economy – like measures to increase investment in renewable electricity, and RMA reform to cut red-tape on farmers. It is only through a strong economy we can reduce the cost of living, lift incomes and afford the public services Kiwis deserve,” Mr Luxon explains.

The Prime Minister stressed that New Zealanders expect and deserve delivery from their government, and that is exactly what they are getting.

He also highlighted the positive impact of recent government actions, such as banning phones in schools, providing tax relief for farmers and tradies, and enhancing security in hospital emergency departments.

This upcoming action plan reflects the government's commitment to making a tangible difference in the lives of New Zealanders, with a focus on delivering practical and impactful changes.
