Pacific members of Parliament were brought together this month to address the way forward for Pacific communities living amongst Auckland’s current housing crisis.

MP’s formed a panel discussion held by The Pacific Islands Chartered Accountants Network.

Jenny Salesa and Su’a William Sio both advocated for Labour’s housing policy to build 100,000 houses over the next ten-years to address the under supply of housing.

National MP, Alfred Ngaro, also supported the idea of defining Pacific prosperity, to support more home ownership by Pacific living in Auckland.
