    Support for National's plan to make the tech sector bigger than dairy

    Support for National's plan to make the tech sector bigger than dairy


    The policy includes creating 100-thousand jobs, increasing tech exports to 16-billion dollars per annum, creating tech visas and scholarships, and introducing a Minister for Technology.

    Tech Industry Association boss Graeme Muller says they've wanted an E-Minister for a very long time.

    He says they currently brief about eight ministers, and having a central coordinator should help the government avoid doubling up or missing out.
