New Zealand and the Global Economy

THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED

LSE public lecture


Mr Key's lecture will cover New Zealand's relationship with the UK and other partners, as well as his reflections on the global economy and New Zealand's prospects.

John Key has been Prime Minister of New Zealand since November 2008. He was born in Auckland but moved to Christchurch when a child. He was educated at Burnside High School and then gained a B.Comm from the University of Canterbury. John launched his investment banking career in New Zealand in the mid 80s. After 10 years in the New Zealand market he headed offshore, working in Singapore, London and Sydney for US investment banking giant Merrill Lynch. During that time he was in charge of a number of business units including global foreign exchange and European bond and derivative trading. In 1999 John was invited to join the Foreign Exchange Committee of the Federal Reserve Bank of NY and on two occasions undertook management studies at Harvard University in Boston.

In 2001, he headed back to New Zealand to fulfill a long held ambition to stand for Parliament for the National Party. He rose through the party ranks, becoming deputy finance spokesman and then finance spokesman. After the 2005 election he continued to be the Party's finance spokesman before being elected leader of the National Party on 27 November 2006.

Please note a new online ticket allocation system will operate from 1 January 2011. This new system is being trialled in light of feedback received from users who have experienced problems when demand for tickets is so high that the website either crashes or runs very slowly. We hope this new system will alleviate these problems.

This event is free and open to all however a ticket is required. One ticket per person can be requested on Monday 7 March.

Members of the public, LSE staff and alumni can request one ticket via the online ticket request form which will be live on the event weblisting after 10.00am on Monday 7 March.

The ticket request form will be online for around an hour from going live. If after an hour we have received more requests than there are tickets available, the line will be closed, and tickets will be allocated on a random basis to those requests received. If after an hour we have received fewer requests than tickets available, the ticket line will stay open until all tickets have been allocated.

Due to changes on the LSE website we can no longer control exactly when a page will update, so it may take a few minutes to appear. You may need to refresh your browser in order to view this link.

LSE students and staff are able to collect one ticket from the New Academic Building SU shop, located on the Kingsway side of the building from 10.00am on Monday 7 March.
