Anti business ACT party declares war on NZ business
“Why has ACT declared war on New Zealand business?” asks Economic Development Minister Jim Anderton.
“It’s extraordinary that today the ACT party attacked one of New Zealand’s leading fashion apparel and organic textile
companies, Snowy Peak which is owned and run by Peri Drysdale. At the same time they also attacked one of our most
successful and experienced private sector chief executives, Craig Boyce.
“Last week it was the Warehouse, 12 of their suppliers and an unsuspecting gaming machine distributor who is trying to
develop world class monitoring software.
“Next week I expect ACT’s future leaders Deborah Coddington and Rodney Hide to launch assaults on other innovative New
Zealand businesses as they try and take us all back to the 80s and 90s economic decline that their policies led us into.
“It’s not all bad news though; Industry New Zealand has reported that thanks to Rodney Hide’s attack the gaming machine
company and has had an export enquiry from overseas for their software,” said Jim Anderton.
