Policy Forum: Minister Phil Twyford

Hear from Labour MP Phil Twyford his plans for transport and housing.

As Housing & Urban Development Minister and Transport Minister, Phil Twyford has two of the highest-profile portfolios in the new coalition government.

He has set ambitious goals in both portfolios, planning to build up to 10,000 houses per year, and to tackle Auckland’s complex transport congestion issues.

To hear how he intends to achieve those goals and to put your questions to the Minister, please join the EMA at our first Policy Forum for 2018 on February 7 at 4pm.​



Hon Phil Twyford is Minister for Housing and Urban Development and Transport and is the Labour Member of Parliament for Te Atatu, where he lives.

After studying politics at Auckland University, Phil worked as a journalist and union organiser before becoming the founding Executive Director of Oxfam New Zealand. Phil’s strong belief in justice led to him becoming Oxfam’s Global Advocacy Director, based in Washington DC.

Upon returning to New Zealand, Phil was elected to Parliament for the Labour Party in 2008. In Opposition, he held the portfolios of Housing, Transport, Auckland Issues, and Disarmament and Arms Control.
