Business Growth Agenda

The Business Growth Agenda is an ambitious programme of work that will support New Zealand businesses to grow, in order to create jobs and improve New Zealanders’ standard of living. The Business Growth Agenda is delivering innovative initiatives and policy reforms that will help create a more productive and competitive economy.

The Business Growth Agenda focuses on six key “ingredients” businesses need to grow: Export markets, innovation, infrastructure, skilled and safe workplaces, natural resources, and capital. Each of these has its own programme of work.

Progress reports will outline what’s being done to improve the business environment, and what further improvements are planned.
