E te Māngai o te Whare, tēnā koe.
Ki a koutou ōku hoa Pāremata, huri noa i te Whare, ngā mihi o te tau hou ki a koutou katoa.
It makes me immensely proud – and my Green Party colleagues immensely proud – to be a part of this Government.
To have had a hand in the development of this Budget – the Greens’ first Budget in Government.
To be laying the foundations for a truly sustainable economy, a healthy environment and a fair society.
This is a budget for every kiwi.
And every takahē.
And every kākā.
