Emerging leaders' dinner (3rd of 6)

Emerging leaders' dinner

In 2004–5 the government spent over $2 million on enhancing Government House Auckland to give the Crown a more visible presence in the country's largest city. In addition to providing a home for Their Excellencies while in the city, the house is often used for events such as this emerging leaders' dinner, hosted by Lady Susan Satyanand (facing camera, right), in 2010.
