Building a more productive and competitive economy
The Business Growth Agenda is the Government's programme of work to build a more productive, confident and competitive economy that will deliver higher incomes and higher living standards for New Zealand. It is focused on six key inputs for businesses: skilled and safe workplaces; export markets; infrastructure; innovation; natural resources; and investment.
Budget 2016 will continue to support and add to this programme of work to ensure there is a supportive business environment for firms to invest, grow and create jobs. Infrastructure will be one priority in the Budget, including the Government's continuing work on housing supply.
