Its time to lift our sights
  • New Zealand needs a vision that will excite and
    motivate every citizen to reach new and
    heretofore unheard of heights. There is no
    reason why this country cannot be one of the most
    prosperous nations in the world and a model for
    others.
  • Dr Michael Porter, 1998

We should aim to be back in the Worlds GDP per
Capita Top 10 by 2025

What role can Wellington play?
  • Since many of the essential determinants of
  • economic performance appear to reside in regions,
  • national policies will be necessary but not
    sufficient.
  • - Michael Porter

- NBR, October 2, 2008
  • The Public Transport Management Act will allow
    councils to redefine partnership as a
    Victorian marriage with the councils as
    father
  • Councils will determine what consumers need and
    design services and fares to meet these perceived
    needs
  • They will then tender closely-specified service
    contracts to private operators
  • Operators will win contracts by offering minimum
    compliance at least cost
  • Councils (i.e. ratepayers) will carry revenue
    risk from patronage fluctuations
  • Councils will attempt to ensure contract
    compliance with a battery of sticks and carrots
    and costly systems to monitor performance.

In closing
  • The time has come for New Zealand to commit to an
    ambitious, measurable goal
  • Wellington needs to set its own ambitious,
    measurable goal
  • Given what we have to work with, we should set
    ourselves a growth target higher than the overall
    New Zealand goal
  • The community needs to understand the virtuous
    cycle
  • We need economic growth so we can afford the
    social, environmental and cultural elements of
    our vision for Wellington
  • All sectors have a role to play, we need a spirit
    of genuine partnership
  • Public and private sector pursuing the same goal
  • But recognising and respecting each others
    respective roles
