Bay of Connections and Regional Growth Study Forum
Thank you to everyone who attended the first Bay of Connections and Regional Growth Study Forum yesterday.
It was a privilege to host the 150 attendees, all of whom provided us with great feedback and fresh perspectives as the action streams continue to progress with momentum.
We have collated Doug Leeder and Cheryl Lewis’ speeches into a single document, along with the slides for you to access and share with colleagues here. If you have any further feedback that you wish to share with us, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
A special thanks to Ministers Steven Joyce, Simon Bridges and Anne Tolley for taking the time to attend.
Minister Joyce made a congratulatory mention of the regions’ willingness to work together, saying “when you have that level of agreement across the region, it makes it easy for us ministers to help you” while also reinforcing that there is an “absolute commitment from the government to support the Bay of Connections”.
It was great to see like-minded people working together during yesterday’s forum and we look forward to seeing these relationships flourish into real results for the region.
Thanks again and we look forward to continuing to work alongside you in the future.
