Taranaki has the highest per-capita income in the country. Which means we earn more per person than any other province.
Most of that comes from two sources: farming and the oil & gas sector. Sure, there are good-paying jobs here, but what if you’re not in those industries? Many people who aren’t in those two areas finish school and leave for greener pastures 😉
So, what about using our brains and resources to develop new industries?
Ideas that will keep young people in the area, and attract new people in.
Innovations that will build a stronger community and a growing population.
And remember: the ideas are worth more than the income they produce…
All ideas are welcome 🙂
