Posted February 11, 2018 03:38:25 New Zealand is home to Australia’s highest-paid man, the top-earning sports star and the country’s most popular pop singer.
But the country is also the top overseas buyer of hybrid apparel.
The country’s chief executive, Sir Andrew Green, and his wife, the former Prime Minister Helen Clark, are to take their new residence to Australia, in a move the prime minister has described as a dream come true.
The couple’s arrival in Australia will mark the first time the two families have lived together in a foreign country.
Sir Andrew is expected to become the countrys top export earner, according to the Sydney Morning Herald.
His wife is also expected to earn more than $5 million a year.
Her main assets are a $15 million beachside property in the Gold Coast, a $10 million home in the Sydney suburbs and a $1 million apartment in Melbourne.
“We are delighted to be in Australia,” Ms Clark said in a statement.
She said they would be spending “many years together”, and would be “looking forward to working together as a team”.
“As I have said, we are passionate about making Australia the best place to live, work and play,” she said.
Australia’s largest company, Coles, announced it had signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the Australian Woolworths, which it plans to expand into a joint venture with the family-run grocery chain, Woolworth.
Coles has said the MoU will create a $2 billion-plus company with the “power to create and create jobs and create wealth for Australians”.
Ms Clark said she wanted to be able to live in the “world’s greatest country”, but that it would be hard to live here without being able to work.
Ms Green, who is the owner of Australian Rugby Sevens, has a history of promoting sustainable farming and climate change and has been described as the country s “chief environmental advocate”.
In December, he signed a letter with Greenpeace calling for an end to “environmental apartheid” in the agriculture sector.
He also said Australia should “re-think its approach to greenwashing”.
Mr Green said he was looking forward to helping Australia achieve its goals of reducing carbon emissions and helping the country “take its environmental sustainability to the next level”.
Australian Greens leader Senator Scott Ludlam said Mr Green had “given the country a fantastic voice and a tremendous opportunity to build a strong, sustainable economy”.
The Greens leader said Australia was already “the most successful and environmentally sustainable economy in the world” and Mr Green was “absolutely committed to ensuring that we continue that success”.
