Simon Bridges is calling on the new Minister of Auckland, to listen to the concerns of businesses in our largest city.
Mount Roskill MP Michael Wood is taking on the new portfolio.
The senior minister was previously an Auckland Council local board member, and is the husband of an Auckland councillor.
Auckland Business Chamber Chief Executive and former National Leader Simon Bridges told Mike Hosking Wood needs to consult with business leaders.
He says the role involves being serious about issues like crime and getting people around, and if he's pragmatic about those issues, he'll succeed.
