Regional Growth with Iwi

I’ve travelled a bit around the country and I’m excited by the way in which iwi are starting to influence the way in which communities grow and thrive. Tokoroa celebrated Countdowns recognition of Māori language and we became optimistic about further gains in this space.
Ngai Tahu leading the way in which a post-earthquake rebuild can include iwi as partners changes the way New Zealanders think about new infrastructure solutions. The base retail hub in Hamilton, a sign that Waikato-Tainui is modernising its commercial viability. In a post-settlement context iwi throughout the country are creating new models of economic development and opportunity.
There are several challenges going forward and I hope that iwi can share best practice in governance and decision-making.
Māori corporate culture and sustainable distribution models. The future is full of opportunity if central, local government, iwi, community and the private sector are committed to a new way of working together.
