National has earmarked the $5 billion to $7 billion it expects to make from partial assets sales for feel-good projects such as modernising schools, in a bid to sweeten up its most controversial election policy.

Prime Minister John Key announced his plan for a Future Investment Fund at National's campaign opening in Auckland, with just under four weeks to go to the November 26 election.

Asset sales promise to be one of the big issues tonight when Mr Key goes head to head with Labour leader Phil Goff for the first time in one of three television debates.
