Both David Shearer and John Key took to the podium to lay out plans for the country, with the Labour leader signalling a firmer line for education and welfare, and the Prime Minister unveiling public sector plans.

In his first major speech as Labour leader, Mr Shearer pinpointed education as the key to New Zealand's future, saying opportunities were being missed.

Meanwhile, Mr Key addressed the Chamber of Commerce in Auckland, where he confirmed plans to merge four government departments.

The new Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment will take in the building and housing, and labour departments, as well as the economic development and science and innovation ministries, and will start up on July 1.
