Economic Development NZ Conference 2021

We’re thrilled to be hosting the annual Economic Development New Zealand (EDNZ) conference here in Palmerston North this year, posing some of the big questions that face regional development in a COVID world, featuring an outstanding selection of national and international speakers.

Designed for central and local government, economic development professionals, community organisations and not for profits, attendees to this conference will have the opportunity to engage in discussions that will help to shape their approach to regional development.

The three-day event provides a unique networking opportunity and a menu of engaging topical discussions and breakout sessions including:
• The future of local and regional growth post COVID-19
• Understanding the housing challenge, the Government's thinking and the role of Kāinga Ora in implementing the plan
• What have we learnt from the challenges of the last year and how can we embed these learnings in new practices?
• What are the pressure points now, and into the future?
• The Provincial Growth Fund - Opportunities, Constraints and Outlook
• COVID-19 and the Māori Economy
