How this can be done
We need to move into creating and exporting a wide range of sustainably developed products, and more knowledge-intensive goods and services based on innovation and
Focusing on a broader mix of exports will mean a wider spread of innovation opportunities, and will require a wider range of skills.
There are a number of emerging and evolving economic sectors including:
- food and beverage
- high technology
- screen and creative industries
- tertiary education and training.
Encouraging these export-linked new sectors will increase the resilience of Auckland's economy and also make New Zealand less vulnerable to fluctuations in commodity prices.
We also need to ensure the ongoing sustainable growth of sectors that are already
internationally competitive, as described on The Tripartite Economic Alliance page.
