The big picture
With its rolling plains and abundant farmland, it’s little wonder that Canterbury is New Zealand’s largest agricultural region. This sector supports a successful food production industry and a thriving agritech scene, offering exciting and innovative prospects for investors.
Canterbury’s business advantage goes well beyond agriculture. Ōtautahi Christchurch, New Zealand’s second-largest city, is a hub of professional services and logistics and a gateway to the South Island and Antarctica. Christchurch has reasserted itself over the last decade as a vibrant city of urban regeneration, creativity and innovation, and hosts a wealth of high-value, high-growth sectors including tourism, technology and engineering.
The quality of life on offer to Christchurch and Canterbury residents, and a drive towards sustainability and a lower-carbon economy, makes this an exciting time to invest in the region.
