The Government is investing $50 million in young people who are not in work or training in the regions.

They're targeting the 5280 most at-risk unemployed young people in Hawke's Bay, Northland, the Eastern Bay of Plenty and East Coast.

"There hasn't been a better opportunity in decades to match unemployed young people with real sustainable jobs in our regions," Prime Minister Bill English said.

"These are the young people that have been on benefit for six months or more."

Central and local government will partner with iwi, local businesses and support agencies to match young people with employers.

Economic Development Minister Simon Bridges said: "The four regions we're targeting have a high proportion of young people who are not in education, employment or training.  But they also have strong primary industries, and other sectors, hungry to employ local talent."

The scheme will be funded from Budget 2017, with $8 million of the total amount set aside to support young Maori in to work.
