Transport and infrastructure policies, projects, best practices, and opportunities to drive economic growth and investment across New Zealand

Attracting investments and advancing sustainable development across New Zealand


Wellington | 22 – 23 May 2019

Over the last decade, New Zealand’s population has grown by more than half a million people, signalling a strong need for adequate, long-term infrastructure planning and investment to ensure communities across the country have access to jobs, transport networks, education, healthcare and housing.

Returning to Wellington in May 2019, Developing NZ brings together government, community and businesses to discuss key economic development, transport and infrastructure opportunities, and explore strategies in attracting investments and advancing sustainable development across New Zealand.
