Electra Business After 5 Presentation: Preparing for growth in a post-COVID world

On Thursday 29 October, leading economist, Shamubeel Eaqub joined us for the launch of the first set of post-COVID economic development forecasts for Horowhenua.

Shamubeel provided independent commentary on the levers and policies that could enhance or limit these forecasts and where the best opportunities potentially lie for the region.

Alongside other areas of regional New Zealand, Horowhenua has enjoyed five years of strong economic and population growth, creating unprecedented opportunities for business and community. The best in decades.

New population forecasts for Horowhenua show it can keep growing - but we can’t be complacent. We must act to offset the economic maelstrom from COVID-19 and lay the foundations for long term growth.
