Photos from a busy day in Christchurch: I began the day by opening the new construction yard at Rolleston Prison with Ministers Nick Smith and Anne Tolley, before speaking to the Christchurch Chamber of Commerce. 

The trip was a wonderful opportunity to see the positive progress underway in the city. I cut the ribbon on a $12.5 million Government housing development at Rangers Park, and took a tour of the new AsureQuality lab.

Recently I announced the men and women of our Provincial Reconstruction Team (PRT) will be leaving the Bamyan province in Afghanistan.

New Zealand troops have played an important role in shoring up the security of Bamyan, and the wider country. We made a big commitment for a small country. I'm very proud of what New Zealand forces have achieved.

In this video, I discuss New Zealand's involvement in Afghanistan.

This Wednesday marked three years since the first of the destructive earthquakes that shook Canterbury. The National-led Government remains as committed as ever to the rebuild - that's why we've made it one of our four top priorities for this term in office.

Prime Minister of New Zealand
Introduction

Authorised by John Key MP, Executive Wing, Parliament, Molesworth Street, Wellington

Prime Minister Rt Hon John Key was born in Auckland but moved to Christchurch when a child. He was educated at Burnside High School and then gained a B.Comm from the University of Canterbury.

John launched his investment banking career in New Zealand in the mid 80s. After 10 years in the New Zealand market he headed offshore, working in Singapore, London and Sydney for US investment banking giant Merrill Lynch. During that time he was in charge of a number of business units including global foreign exchange and European bond and derivative trading. In 1999 John was invited to join the Foreign Exchange Committee of the Federal Reserve Bank of NY and on two occasions undertook management studies at Harvard University in Boston.

In 2001, he headed back to New Zealand to fulfill a long held ambition to stand for Parliament for the National Party. He won the Helensville seat in 2002 with a majority of 1589. John has risen through the ranks since then, becoming deputy finance spokesman and then finance spokesman, rising to number 7 prior to the 2005 election. At the 2005 election he again won the Helensville seat, this time with a majority of 12,778. He continued to be the Party's finance spokesman and was ranked at number 4 before being elected Leader on 27 November 2006.

In 2008 he led the National Party to victory in the election and is currently the Prime Minister of the National-led Government.

John is married to Bronagh and has 2 children. When he has some spare time he likes to spend time with the family, cooking, playing golf and watching rugby.
