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.
The Horowhenua New Zealand Trust invites you to join Deputy Prime Minister, and Leader of the New Zealand First Party, Rt. Hon. Winston Peters, and leading economist Shamubeel Eaqub for an event on the 12th August.
After opening remarks from the Deputy Prime Minister, Shamubeel will present the first set of population and economic forecasts post-COVID 19, followed by a Q&A panel with the candidates for the Ōtaki electorate seat.
Shamubeel Eaqub is an experienced economist who makes economics easy. He is also an author, media commentator and a thought leading public speaker.
Shamubeel will provide independent commentary on the levers and policies that could enhance or limit these forecasts and where the best opportunities potentially lie for the region, followed by a Q&A session for attendees.
Hear from your candidates
Following the presentation, Shamubeel will chair a panel of candidates for the Ōtaki electorate; who will answer questions and share their plans for how we can act now, to move Horowhenua forwards.
When: 11.30am - 1.30pm, Wednesday 12th August 2020.
Where: Focal Point Cinema, Levin.
