The Business Update is one of our most popular events.

Held every quarter, the event offers expert comment and analysis about the country’s business and economic scenes.

Auckland Chamber CEO Michael Barnett discusses results from the Chamber’s most recent Business Confidence Survey, and financial journalist Bernard Hickey explores a range of topics across economic, political and business landscapes that directly impact how you’re doing business.

Examples of key topics covered:

  • Business confidence – perception versus reality.
  • Small business - too big to ignore.
  • NZ’s infrastructure crisis – why businesses need a pipeline of activity to feed off
  • Government debt level - how our policy of 20% of GDP compares internationally and why it should be relaxed
