EMA Presents Hon Andrew Bayly Minister for Small Business and Manufacturing

Proudly Supported by nib Insurance

Hosting partner – Waikato Innovation Park 

The EMA is pleased to invite you to hear from Minister of Small Business and Manufacturing Hon. Andrew Bayly at Waikato Innovation Park on Thursday, 18 July from 11am to 12.30pm. This is your opportunity to engage with the Minister and get an intimate overview of how the government is supporting and promoting these crucial sectors of the economy.

The Minister was in Australia for a series of bi-lateral meetings and manufacturing visits in March. Hear what he learnt during his visit that could benefit small business operators and manufacturers here.

The manufacturing sector accounts for nearly 10% of all jobs in the country and more than half of exports, but it has now been in contraction for 13 consecutive months. Hear from a key decision-maker about policy changes and his vision for the future, share your thoughts, and exchange ideas on how to navigate these challenging times.

Reducing red tape is high on the government’s agenda, and its recent immigration changes made it easier for franchisee businesses wanting to recruit migrant staff such as chefs, hairdressers, electricians and plumbers and other trades-related staff. Hear what else the government has in store to make doing business in New Zealand easier and more profitable.

Your participation and input are invaluable, as revitalising and strengthening the manufacturing and small business landscape will take a combined effort.
Numbers are strictly limited. Book now to reserve your place.
