Economic Policy Advisory Committee (EPAG)

National’s strong track record on the economy has seen our growth rate lift to amongst the highest in the developed world, the deficit significantly reduced, and 153,000 more people forecast to be in work by mid-2019.

The Economy Policy Adivsory Group (EPAG) is a group of National Party members with strong interest and expertise in our economy. EPAG provides input to National’s Finance Spokespeople on economic policy issues from the perspective of National Party members.

EPAG typically meets 6 to 8 times a year with other work and discussion outside the formal meetings. We work closely with other PAGs where there is a common interest.

You can follow us to stay up to date, or contact the Co-Chair, Derek Lillie, at if you believe you have a set of skills or experience which you would like to contribute.
