The building and construction sector is the engine of New Zealand, underpinning the economic growth, jobs, and the communities we all live in.
Over half a million Kiwis owe their livelihoods to the sector and collectively they contribute $20 billion towards New Zealand’s GDP. The events of 2020 have clearly shown us that a successful future for the construction sector, and for New Zealand, is built on resilience. A resilient sector that can learn, adapt and innovate is where we must head so we can deliver the economic, environmental and social outcomes New Zealand needs.
This year, we ask the hard questions about what reforms our sector and New Zealand’s wider economy needs to become more resilient.
