Ensure National understands the needs of New Zealand's seniors.


The National Party is proud to have a strong membership which develops meaningful policy proposals and research for the benefit of New Zealanders.

To support policy development work, National has established a number of Policy Advisory Groups (PAGs), focused on specific policy areas. These include Economy, Infrastructure & Technology; Education, Arts and Sport; External Relations and Security; Social Communities and Housing; Primary Industries and Environment; Health COVID-19 and ACC; and Justice, Treaty and Governance Policy Advisory Groups.
