Update on 2016 so far

Maintaining the momentum achieved last year is critical for 2016 and much has already happened over the past two months.

• Aquaculture and Forestry sector meetings held last week
• Freight Logistics met in Tauranga this week

Regional Growth Study Forum – save the date
A Bay of Connections and Regional Growth Programme forum will be held at Mataatua Marae, Whakatane, on 6 July, 2016. This two-hour forum will provide an update on actions in the Regional Growth Study, an overview of the wider Bay of Connections portfolio, and provide a forum for stakeholders to provide direct feedback and input.
