Cabinet Paper CAB-20-SUB-0472: Tiwai Aluminium Smelter Negotiating Mandate


1This paper informs Cabinet of the approach that the Minister of Finance, Minister of Energy and Resources, and Minister for the Environment (Joint Ministers) intend to take to negotiations on the potential for a delay to the planned closure of the Tiwai aluminium smelter (Tiwai). Funding to cover negotiating and due diligence costs partly already incurred by the Treasury is sought. This paper also seeks power to act for the Joint Ministers, the Minister for Economic and Regional Development and the Prime Minister to finalise a deal if this is required before Cabinet has the opportunity to consider a final proposal.
