Building capital markets

The Building Capital Market work stream of the Business Growth Agenda aims to grow New Zealand’s economy by increasing investment and the flow of capital into our export sector.

It aims to build investor confidence, reduce the cost of capital to businesses, encourage saving and open the way for more international investment.

Investment via capital markets will play a vital role in achieving the government’s target of lifting exports to 40% of GDP by 2025.
