Modern New Zealand in a Changing World: An outline of a small modern economy in the Asia Pacific that has achieved record surpluses and the lowest unemployment in the OECD. New Zealand's Prime Minister will describe the social and economic initiatives undertaken by the government that she has led into a historic third term.

Helen Clark was elected Prime Minister of New Zealand in November 1999 and in 2005 she became the first New Zealand Labour Party Leader to take the party into three consecutive election victories. Since entering Parliament in 1981 she has held a number of Ministerial portfolios, including conservation, housing, labour and health and in 1986 was awarded the annual Peace Prize of the Danish Peace Foundation for her work in promoting peace and disarmament. She also currently serves as Minister of Arts, Culture and Heritage.
