    The Government and business leaders are at odds over border issues

    The Government and business leaders are at odds over border issues


    The New Zealand Herald's annual Mood of the Boardroom survey has heard the opinions and concerns of 165 CEOs and company directors.

    The business community has criticised the lack of skilled workers being let into the country to help with our economic recovery.

    Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern rejects that -- saying they've made significant moves in recent times.

    She says they've recently opened up class exemptions for fisheries, vets and horticulture.
