Lecture Theme

Mr Robertson is expected to cover a number of issues in his Lecture including the government’s fiscal policy, Wellbeing Budget, the need to invest in areas which he believes needs special and immediate attention, and how Good Financial Management contributes to Good Governance.

Presenting his Budget (2019-2010) in Parliament on May 30, 2019, he said, “We begin, through this Budget, to value and to measure all that makes life worthwhile in New Zealand.”

Do you agree? You can raise a point or two during the Question & Answer Session.

Born in Palmerston North, Mr Robertson graduated (Bachelor of Arts) with Honours from the University of Otago in 1995. He has had impressive assignments in Samoa, United Nations New York and as an Advisor to Prime Minister Helen Clark in Wellington, before he decided to contest for a Parliamentary seat in the November 2008 general election. Since then, his constituents have returned him to Parliament in four successive polls.

He is a master in financial management and fiscal policy.

The Lecture would, therefore, one of a kind.
