The Tai Poutini West Coast Regional Growth Study, released
in September 2016, was commissioned in response to challenging economic
conditions on the West Coast in the last few years. The Study identified that
the region has several assets that will support stronger employment and income
growth into the future. These included its resourceful people, spectacular
natural assets and abundant resources.
The Tai Poutini West Coast Economic Development Action Plan
sets out how these opportunities are to be executed. The Action Plan provides
clarity to delivery partners and the community about what is to be delivered,
when actions are to be delivered, and who is responsible and involved.
