Rebuild New Zealand

December 2020

A reset and where next?

In our final report in the Rebuild New Zealand 2020 series we recap the major events of the year, then look ahead at the new Government’s agenda and the priorities now for New Zealand businesses.

It’s time for a reset - to shift the focus on confronting COVID-19 to how we seize the opportunity afforded by our COVID-free status to address long standing issues, and rebuild our economy and our society so there is a more prosperous and inclusive future for all New Zealanders.

Where next - 2021 and beyond?

There are a range of long term issues we must address to strengthen the next phase of New Zealand’s recovery.

This includes the Government’s leadership and approach, reform of the education sector, encouraging more capital investment, addressing the climate change imperative, improving resource allocation and infrastructure, amending our retirement savings and superannuation settings and local government reforms.

Let’s seize the opportunity

We must build on our favourable attributes of small size and agility, competitive industries, an emerging tech sector, renewable energy, and strong institutions and stability.

We can feel real optimism around continuing to combat the risks surrounding COVID-19. We must seize the opportunity to rebuild our economy and our society so that there is a more prosperous and inclusive future for all New Zealanders.
