We were made by New Zealanders who want to believe, like we do, that this is the best country in the world. A place chock full of talent, so beautiful it can make your heart sing. A place where you want your kids to grow up, full of beans, fresh air and big ideas. A place that has it all. The envy of elswehere, we believe this should be a country where everyone feels they can achieve and have a good life and you don't have to go overseas to 'make it'. We are ambitious for New Zealand. We want it to grow to be a strong place where businesses invest, and people see their future. We believe we can make it happen. - Creed
