NZ contributes a further $6M to support Niue’s Covid-19 response
New Zealand has contributed a further $6 million to support Niue’s response to the Covid-19 pandemic.
NZ High Commissioner to Niue Helen Tunnah signed the grant funding letter at Parliament today, with the Premier, Hon Dalton Tagelagi, and the Minister of Finance, Hon Crossley Tatui.
Premier Tagelagi and Minister Tatui, and MPs, thanked New Zealand for their contribution.
The funding is made available under the New Zealand Aid Programme’s multi-country activity fund. It will contribute to the pandemic response activities outlined in Niue’s economic response to the COVID-19 briefing paper, along with essential investments to strengthen health and border systems.
New Zealand has already contributed $3.75 million to assist Niue in managing its response to COVID-19, in addition to the provision of personal protective equipment and other medical materials.
