Accelerate25 Regional Growth

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.

Under this implementation programme, the Manawatū-Whanganui Economic Action Plan was created by business, iwi, local and central government with the purpose of unlocking the potential within the region to create opportunities through the means provided by enablers, identifying priorities to implement and key agencies to work with. 

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 or find out more here.
