Confusion over debt

Thursday May 03, 2018

Dear Editor,

I refer to the letter by Ngati Nicholls in CINews on May 2, in which he claimed that our government owes NZ$145.5 million to China and asks how we’re going to pay for it?

Dear Editor,

The Democratic Party did not betray Norman George as he alleges.

Dear Editor,

I thank the Secretary for the Ministry of Culture in responding to my concerns yesterday.

Dear Editor,

I’ve just read an article on this page (CINews website) about our government owing China $145.5 million dollars.

We invested a lot in the advertising for over a year on this competition through our Facebook page and also through CITV and CINews in the last three weeks.

Dear Editor,

Over the years we have seen so many blunders made by the ministry of culture when it comes to organising events or judging criteria and the dance competition on Thursday night just shows absolute incompetence.

Dear Editor,

On Monday morning of last week, I was listening to CI Radio with the never-boring host George Pitt at the helm.

Dear Editor,

Merchant of Paradise (MOP) has received its copy of the tender documents for Vaimaanga and I am able to confirm that nothing in those documents supports the rumours flying around that government has been looking to take over the Vaimaanga project.
