About this event

The Wellington Chamber of Commerce invite you to attend our Post-Budget Breakfast with National Party Finance Spokesperson and Deputy Leader, Nicola Willis.

Did the budget do enough to help business, and what would National do differently if they were in power?

How would they address the big issues for business – particularly rising inflation– and what could the government be doing now to help our recovery?

Join us on May 24th to hear the Opposition’s response, and be a part of the breakfast that will lead the Post-Budget conversation.
