The Canterbury Employers’ Chamber of Commerce is a key stakeholder in the New Zealand Chambers of Commerce and Industry (NZCCI).
NZCCI have prepared insight documents for the incoming Government after comprehensive consultation with membership across the country. We consider it to be critical that Central Government understands the needs of business, which are many and varied, and recognises the importance of businesses contribution to healthy sustainable communities.
We also are strongly of the view that our regions across New Zealand are quite different and require different levels of Government intervention and support to ensure optimal economic development and progress.
We have made it clear to Government that a one size fits all policy, whether that be covering immigration or infrastructure, is simply not appropriate and we look forward to working with whichever Government manifests itself post 23 September in the best interests of our members and the wider business community.
There are three insight documents:
1. The first is directed towards the politicians and succinctly outlines our expectations. Click here to view.
2. The second is a member and community facing document which informs them of the rational behind our requirements for the incoming Government. Click here to view.
3. The third document contains all the background material which can be selectively mined to resource an intelligent business-political interface. Click here to view.
