National will campaign on the economy, education, health and law and order in the November 26 election, Prime Minister John Key says.
He told the party's Central North Island weekend conference in Gisborne the election would be about which party had a realistic plan to achieve faster growth that would deliver jobs, higher incomes and better living standards.
"We will stick to the pragmatic, responsible course that New Zealanders have come to expect from us," he said.
Mr Key spent most of his speech telling delegates about the Government's achievements during its first term in office and said he was optimistic about the future.
"The world is paying more for our exports than ever before, people are getting out of debt and investing productively, our taxes are the lowest they have been in decades," he said.
"Our hospitals are performing more operations and our law and order system is better across the board."
