According to Nikki Nicholl, director general of the National Olympic Committee, the project will be supported by the government. It will not be implemented by a single city, as tradition dictates, but by the entire country, relying on local equipment. At this point, the process is just beginning. New Zealanders are making no secret of the matter, as discussions have only just begun, and it is expected that there will be many steps before the nomination is officially confirmed.
