Join our Team – Check out new opportunities at CEDA

We are here to turn our region’s economy into a high-performing economy. Our focus is on igniting the transformation to shift our region into high gear, and in getting the pieces in place to create a long-term, sustainable economy that is thriving.

We are the voice when it comes to economic development in Manawatu.

We connect, enable and create – bringing our diverse stakeholders into one conversation, steering others in the same direction, and co-ordinating our region’s collective capability towards achieving great things together.

We ask the hard questions about economic growth and challenge stakeholders to deliver on a broader sense of wealth: economic, social, cultural and environmental wealth.

While we’re responsible for the prosperity of Manawatu we’re already working further afield and partnering with other regions. And to achieve in a national and global market, partnerships are something we’re going to need more of.
