    The Government's aiming to get Kiwi businesses back on track


    The Productivity Commission's announced it's looking to find ways to improve productivity.

    Economics director Patrick Nolan says traditionally, Kiwi firms are persistently unproductive.

    He says they'll look at successful companies like Xero and Rocket Lab for processes to share with lower performing businesses.

    But he says it'll be a challenge to identify firms that are struggling.
