    Concerns about the foreign minister's engagement

    Concerns about the foreign minister's engagement


    China's foreign minister is offering deals to 10 Pacific nations - and has already struck one with Samoa.

    National's called for Nanaia Mahuta to head to the Pacific to better understand China's intentions.

    NZME business commentator Fran O'Sullivan says the portfolio requires a Minister who is on the road a lot -- and Mahuta seems to have too much on her plate.

    She says it's a huge portfolio today as the country has relationships with many more players than 20 years ago.
