"A thriving economy based on innovation, growth and robust planning"
Development is on a roll, migration is increasing, the construction industry is booming and the horticultural sector is reaching record export heights. The overall economic impact on the western Bay is unlikely to ebb any time soon.
The agricultural and horticultural sectors have a strong impact on the western Bay’s economy. In fact, we’re almost three times more reliant on these sectors for their economic output than New Zealand as a whole. The entire area’s economy is also intertwined with Tauranga city’s economy, which provides most of the western Bay’s manufacturing and services. The Port of Tauranga is the largest in New Zealand and provides our gateway to the world.
