NZ's Pacific migration policy

Labour pledges to review NZ's Pacific migration policy

Labour's Pacific Affairs spokesperson, Aupito William Sio, said the migration policy will be reviewed for small Pacific nations like Tuvalu, Tokelau and Kiribati which feel the brunt of climate change.

He also said the Cook Islands, Niuean, Tokelauan, Samoan and Tongan languages will be made official community languages in the education system.

Aupito said quality language education had a proven record of raising academic achievement.

He also promised Pasifika content in public broadcasting, and goals for Pacific literacy, research and bilingualism.
