Northland is rich in natural resources and cultural heritage, boasts a subtropical climate, and has one of the world's most beautiful coastlines.
Northland already has a lot to offer for primary industry, tourism, food and beverage, and education — and it's time to build on that strength. Te Tai Tokerau Northland Economic Action Plan brings together over 60 different projects and initiatives to grow Northland's economy.
Funding from the Provincial Development Unit is already helping get these projects off the ground.
- Population: 175,400
- Average household income: $85,500
- GDP per capita: $39,835
Note: PGF funding is approved in principle and announced, after which contracts are negotiated. Some funding may depend on completion of business cases. Payments are made once agreed milestones are met. These are set as part of contract negotiations, and differ from project to project.
