COVID-19 Alert Level 4 in the Waikato: Looking Back to Shape the Way Forward

The Waikato is well placed to support a national economic recovery:

Four sectors feature strongly in our 2019 GDP contribution and 2016-2019 growth and have proven to respond well post the Global Financial Crisis and Christchurch Earthquakes.

Three broad sectors take a predominant focus as we look towards our recovery:

  1. Primary Industries
  2. Manufacturing
  3. Construction

In supporting business recovery a number of cross-cutting themes will require business to adjust. Effort and focus must look to:

  • Education and Training
  • Technology and Innovation
  • Infrastructure
