1. What does it mean to you to have been selected as a "Global Leader for Tomorrow"?

Being New Zealand's first politician to be selected as one of the WEF's Global Leaders for Tomorrow is a great honour. The selection gives me the opportunity to build international networks to both assist my own country and it provides the opportunity to work with others from around the globe in an attempt to find reasoned solutions to worldwide social and economic problems

2. You have been selected by the World Economic Forum for what you have already done in your life, "holding positions of considerable power, influence and responsability". What are the 3-5 things you are most proud of?

(a) Being elected to the New Zealand Parliament - in my view there is no greater honour than being elected to represent your own people.

Die besten Jobs von allen

(b) Being at the forefront of the NZ Government's E-Commerce Project which is attempting to move the nation from a commodity dependent economy to a knowledge based society.

(c) Providing leadership to my community by bringing commercial business expertise to the New Zealand Parliament.

3. The World Economic Forum is "committed to improving improve the state of the world". You will participate in shaping tomorrow's world. What impact would you like to have?

To help build a global sense of community on a base of mutual respect for our differences. A world where we can celebrate our differences and our common humanity.

4. The World Economic Forum is also a forum to discuss the present state of the world economy. What is the analysis you would give?

We are moving to a high tech society where there are no longer fixed borders, and since the events of September 11 there is a feeling of insecurity and anticipation among many countries. There is a lack of security yet a feeling of pride in one's country and one's community.
