The big picture
Known as the 'birthplace of the nation', Northland is rich in history and culture. For investors, it also offers a wide variety of opportunities to build on the region's strengths and create new and sustainable value from its plentiful resources.
Although underpinned by primary production and manufacturing, Northland's economy is diverse. High-performing sectors include pastoral farming and processing, horticulture, marine engineering and energy.
Northland is New Zealand's only subtropical region, and its warm climate and extensive coastline offer natural advantages for high-quality forestry and aquaculture production. The region is also home to Northport – the country's newest, largest and closest port to international markets.
