ChristchurchNZ does this by letting business decision makers located in New Zealand and around the world in on Ōtautahi’s best kept secret – the unique local business environment that enables growth and wellbeing for companies and employees.
I believe strongly that Christchurch has a lot to offer. Originally from the UK, I moved to Christchurch from Auckland because of my wife’s work with the Christchurch Symphony Orchestra. The lifestyle benefits and the ability to buy our own home were compelling and echo the stories we hear from many young professionals, who make the move.
The future looks bright for business in Christchurch and while for obvious reasons 2020 wasn’t the jumpstart to a new decade we had hoped for, we remain well positioned to promote our competitive advantages. The diversity of Canterbury’s economy has provided resilience and our community support networks are strong.
Our competition is strong too and the Golden Triangle of Auckland, Hamilton, and Tauranga, has had ten-years of comparative normality to attract both people, businesses and investment. Meanwhile, Christchurch has been rebuilding, adapting and repositioning, with the future firmly in mind.
