Our action plan - Tā Tātou Mahere Mahi

To achieve our Vision and address the labour market challenges, we have identified five key focus areas. They affect every sector in Te Tai Poutini West Coast and directly link to our Action Plan.

We have proposed 14 key actions to cover our five focus areas, each with a set of activities, potential lead agency, partners and outcomes. Of those activities we have identified eight that will be prioritised over the next year, including the three RSLG member commitments. The remaining actions are also important, and we have categorised these into years 2-3 and year 4 onwards.
