The Government's Business Growth Agenda

Published: 19th June 2012

The government’s principal economic goal is to build a more competitive and productive economy.

While the government cannot drive economic growth by itself, it can help to remove obstacles that prevent business from thriving. The government will lay the platform to create an environment that allows businesses to grow, export and create high-value jobs.

The government has identified six key inputs that are necessary to boost business growth.

The Ministry of Economic Development is leading the following inputs:

  • Capital markets
  • Innovation and ideas.

We will work with other agencies on the following inputs:

  • Skilled and safe workplaces
  • Natural resources
  • Infrastructure (including electricity, broadband, transport)
  • Export markets.
