Regional investment opportunities

Not all regions are created equally. If you want to grow the best wine you’ll be looking for a location with a different climate, terrain and set of workforce skills to an investor establishing a new specialised IT support centre.

Use our investment profiles to discover the unique characteristics of each region and identify which regions offer the criteria to match your investment interests. Compare each region's sector strengths and how these are supported by investment in innovation, workforce skills, raw materials, services and infrastructure.

Download our 'All of New Zealand' investment profile or select region-by-region. You'll find the profiles on the right-hand side of this page.
