New Zealand is at a pivotal point in its history and bold changes are needed to prepare it for the future, Labour leader David Shearer says.
However, he didn't give any indication of what Labour would do about that in a speech to a Grey Power meeting in Auckland on Friday.
"I will be laying out a comprehensive set of policies in the run up to the 2014 election that I believe will make a difference," he said.
"We will be very deliberate and considered in this process."
Mr Shearer has said very little about his policy plans since replacing Phil Goff after last November's election.
Most of his speech was about state-owned assets and Labour's pledge not to sell any of them.
He's expected to outline his plans in more detail in about three weeks.
