Chairperson of Pasifika Futures, Dr Kiki Maoate, says they've developed and delivered far more than what they set out to do three years ago.

"We've signed another 3-year-contract with the Ministry," he says. "Given the results that we're producing in improving family debt, financial literacy, looking at the educational programmes and looking at the workforce and businesses that have been set up."

Sir La’auli Michael Jones, Minister for Pacific Peoples Hon. Alfred Ngaro and Whanau Ora Minister Hon. Te Ururoa Flavell will also speak at conference.
