An Interview with Jenny Shipley

The prime of Mrs Jenny Shipley – 04 Feb 2008 – Politics: New Zealand Political News, Analysis and Comment including 2008 election coverage – NZ Herald

Karyn Scherer has done an in depth interview with Jenny Shipley. The interview shows what a capable Prime minister we lost when Clark won in 1999.
[quote]In any case, she would be pushed to find the time right now, what with chairing construction company Mainzeal, and sitting on the board of its parent company, Richina Pacific. She also chairs Senior Money International, which operates in six countries, including New Zealand. Its local arm, Sentinel, is probably best known for trying to establish a credible reverse mortgage market here. She is also on the board of Momentum, a local human resources company. Oh, and she has recently joined the board of China’s third largest bank.[/quote]

Most of the article focuses on China and the huge changes that are happening there and the implications of the impending FTA.
