    The Prime Minister says it's unacceptable our international business agency used to promote water bottling to overseas investors


    New Zealand Trade and Enterprise is being criticised for actively encouraging Chinese bottling giant, Nong Fu, to invest in local water businesses in 2015.

    Jacinda Ardern says it once marketed Franz Joseph Glacier was something to invest in.

    She says while they've now stopped doing that kind of promotion - it's disturbing that they ever did it in the first place.
