Invest In Our Region

The Bay of Connections region is a unique and beautiful part of Aotearoa that presents an abundance of investment opportunities in both established and emerging industries.

The area’s geothermal energy resource provides a unique and reliable source of clean renewable energy, and our region’s access to clean coastal waters and mild climates lend to the ongoing development of the agriculture and aquaculture sectors.

The Port of Tauranga is a major driver of economic activity and is New Zealand’s largest seaport for exports. The region’s 227km of railway is the most densely used of the national rail network.
