Niueans living in New Zealand could be sceptical about attempts to get them to eventually return to the island.

That's according to Niuean community leader in Auckland, Granby Siakamotu.

He was reacting to comments from Niue's premier, Toke Talagi, who says tourism and possibly mining could provide jobs which might attract Niueans from overseas.

The premier says it might take up to fifteen years to do that.

Granby Siakamotu tells Bruce Hill the task of persuading Niueans to return is a daunting one, and he's not sure it will work.
