Update: This seminar is now available as a two part podcast.

Our first seminar in the Resilient Economy Series identified a number of key factors hampering New Zealand's real economy. These included the need for a more stable currency, encouragement of more investment in our productive enterprises and the negative impact of the current implementation of monetary policy. We now look to some of the options for addressing these problems.

The Christchurch event sees John Walley of the Manufacturers and Exporters Association, a forthright commentator from the first Fabian seminar, discuss with Rick Boven from the New Zealand Institute exactly what we need to do to build a truly Resilient New Zealand Economy. The New Zealand Institute is an independent think-tank with its own project focussed on improving New Zealand's competitive strength.
