New Zealand's Regional Development Minister Shane Jones called on regional communities to apply for funding from the Provincial Growth Fund to save regional airports from further dilapidation (Radio NZ, 10-Jul-2019). Mr Jones added: "We need to take a risk and we need to rehabilitate the essential infrastructure of the provinces... We've got a dedicated fund for waste, a dedicated fund for Māori land and a dedicated fund for energy. It was my ambition to have a dedicated fund for our regional airports".
