On Friday 30 April, our glass was full as we had the amazing opportunity to briefly introduce the Taranaki Foundation – what we do, our vision and how to get involved to nearly 200 Taranaki Business Professionals over a breakfast and a lunch session with Economist Cameron Bagrie.

Cameron focused on the BIG economic picture – the impact of housing laws; COVID-19 impacts including the skilled labour supply shortage and material and supply disruptions; property investment; consideration of economic versus social conscience; the decrease in regular attendance of school children nationally;  and what we face as a country.

Thank you to Centuria (formerly Augusta) who made this event possible in association with the Taranaki Chamber of Commerce.
