The big picture
Generating 38 percent of New Zealand’s GDP, Auckland has an international reputation as a business-friendly and innovation-oriented city. Its economic and infrastructure growth has outpaced Sydney, Melbourne and Vancouver over the past decade.
Auckland has significant industry strengths in high-value manufacturing, food processing, the creative sector, and tech and digital – on a national level and as an Asia-Pacific hub. A series of transformative infrastructure upgrades will help extend these advantages and enable significant growth into the future.
With a spectacular natural setting, New Zealand’s largest and most culturally diverse population, and a strong indigenous Māori identity, Auckland is consistently ranked as one of the world’s most liveable cities and attracts talent from across the Asia-Pacific region and around the world.
