The Canterbury Development Corporation, the economic development agency of the Christchurch City Council is about to release its Christchurch Economic Development Strategy. This is a well thought out and significant piece of work. It identifies the key economic drivers of our future and the sort of growth we can expect if we get things right. It also indicates where we might end up if we get things wrong! The strategy is about more than money. It is about our community, social issues and getting our environment right. At CECC we have been close to this plan as it has been developed and we intend to stay close to it as it is realized. The plan depends on all us for its delivery. We will all need to support it and be actively engaged. Watch out for it's release post Easter and in the meantime enjoy a well deserved Easter break!
