Mixed reaction from Niue to NZ policy - NZ believes Small Islands such as Tokelau and Niue economically unviable

ABC RADIO PACIFIC BEATUpdated December 17, 2010 09:00:51

Reaction from Niue to a possible change in New Zealand policy towards the island has been mixed.

The Foreign Affairs, Defence and Trade Committee has just released a report on the country's relationship with the Pacific which calls for people in Tokelau, Niue and Cook Islands to get access to the same services as other New Zealand citizens.

It says small territories such as Tokelau and Niue are economically unviable.

On Niue, the report has attracted support, but also some wariness, as Bruce Hill reports.

Presenter: Bruce Hill
Speakers: O'Love Jacobsen, Niue Health Minister; Hima Douglas, former Niuean cabinet minister
