Vaine Wichman: Government’s Covid-19 support

Monday March 30, 2020 Published in Letters to the Editor

We note kind words from our people regarding government’s pro-active actions to help cushion the economic effects of the Covid-19 pandemic.


We qualify that the assistance from government is founded on the kind support of all our people (community & faith-based, private, and public sector) who have diligently worked and paid taxes over the years.

Our government should take credit only for prudently managing these resources over the years and setting up the Parliament approved reserves we can now access.

I highlight that this is the second time a Cook Islands Party led government has worked diligently to buffer the onslaught of a country crisis.
