New Zealands's weather is set to improve under the new National Government led by incoming Prime Minister the Rt Honourable John Key MP.
The Department of Environment is to use 'Cloud Seeding' a technique the Chinese authorities used successfully to ensure dry weather at the Beijing Olympics.
The technique involves firing a large number of missiles into the atmosphere.
For major sporting events such as Cricket and Tennis matches it is important that the weather is fine said a DOE spokesman.
"Big money can be lost through rain delays which is a serious blow to the organisers and ultimately a loss to the New Zealand financial system" he said.
"We also have plans to extend it to popular Public Holidays in the summer so that holidaymakers get the rest and relaxation they deserve."
Mr Key said that the weather under the preceeding Labour Government had been 'appalling' and that he would do everything within his power to improve it.
