NZ in 2013 – the three-speed economy

Mark Cairns, CEO of the Port of Tauranga and the Deloitte/Management magazine Top 200 Awards CEO of the Year for 2012, commented on the three-speed economy (Christchurch, Auckland and the rest).

One of NZ’s newest Knights, Ngai Tahu’s Mark Solomon highlighted the benefits for business of partnering with iwi/Maori that had been identified by the Ministerial Taskforce on the Maori Economy.

Other leaders, from Orcon and now Kordia New Zealand’s CEO Scott Bartlett, to Turners & Growers CEO Geoff Hipkins, cite propositions from second submarine internet cable to unified currency with Australia, as possible drivers of the quantum leap in performance we need to start realising the country’s potential.
