Business Expo Breakfast

Tuesday 7 May, 7.30 am – 9.00 am

Add the Business Expo Breakfast to your agenda.

An informative Business Breakfast with Economist Bernard Hickey - An update on the economy.

Bernard Hickey will give a special presentation for the Hutt Chamber of Commerce on how the Wellington and New Zealand economies are traveling ahead of the upcoming ‘Wellbeing’ Budget. He’ll also detail why New Zealand must overcome its allergy to investing heavily and consistently over time in public infrastructure such as roads, rail, housing, health and education. He’ll highlight a $100 billion investment opportunity for any ambitious Government that is listening to international and local savers. Bernard will challenge, provoke and surprise attendees with a presentation on the potential for a great leap forward for our infrastructure and the economy. He will explain why savers are desperate to lend this Government tens of billions at less than 3.0 percent, and why there’s a chance it might happen after next year’s election.
