In July 2015, Central Government, in consultation with Horizons and district and city councils, commissioned a Regional Growth Study which identified a number of opportunities and key enablers to help realise our Region’s economic potential. The implementation programme from this study is known as Accelerate25.
The aim of Accelerate25 is to grow our regional prosperity between now and 2025. Business, iwi, local and central government have been working over the past year to create an Action Plan to unlock the opportunities.
To succeed, Accelerate25 will need the whole Region behind it. The programme is about realising a short and long-term vision for a prosperous, strong and vibrant Manawatū-Whanganui Region. To find out more about Accelerate25, register to receive our monthly newsletter below or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or via Twitter @Accelerate_25.
AgriFood Investment week this year includes two Accelerate25 water reticulation seminars being held at Central Districts Field Days. Please pre-register your interest over here.
