    The Prime Minister says a multi-million dollar cash boost for clean energy in Asia is money well spent

    The Prime Minister says a multi-million dollar cash boost for clean energy in Asia is money well spent


    The Government's committing 41-million dollars towards an Asian Development Bank initiative to promote clean energy in South East Asia.

    It comes as thousands of public service jobs are on the chopping block, as part of cost-cutting here at home.

    Christopher Luxon says the money comes out of an existing budget, specifically set aside for overseas projects like these.

    He understands things are tough in New Zealand at the moment, but the Government needs to do what it can, to get the books back in shape.
