UCOL Hosts Business Event Focused On The Economy

News Release

26 February 2013
UCOL Hosts Business Event Focused On The Economy
UCOL is hosting an event for Manawatu businesspeople, focused on the future of the economy.

UCOL is working with the ANZ and the Palmerston North City Council to stage the Breakfast Event which will feature Chief Economist for the ANZ and Head of the New Zealand Economic Team, Cameron Bagrie.

The event will also include the launch of the Council’s Profile of the Construction Sector in the Manawatu, by its Economic Policy Adviser Peter Crawford.

Mr Bagrie will then lead a discussion on the performance and future of the economy, both locally and nationally.

UCOL’s Deputy Chief Executive (Strategy) Clare Crawley says it’s an opportunity for Manawatu businesspeople to hear firsthand from a leading economic commentator at a time when the regional and national economy is delicately poised.

Ms Crawley says UCOL involvement in the event is part of its commitment to contribute to the community, including the business sector. “Knowledge, understanding and foresight are important in our efforts to boost and sustain the local economy,” she says. “Education doesn’t stop at the lecture room door.”

Cam Bagrie has been with the ANZ Bank since 1999 and leads the economics team. Before working at ANZ, he was with the New Zealand Treasury. He is one of New Zealand’s leading economic commentators and is recognised as an excellent communicator, providing up-to-date and understandable economic information to New Zealanders.

The Breakfast Event will be held at UCOL’s new Trades and Technology Centre in Princess Street from 7.30 to 9am on Friday 8 March.
