"This is excellent news for both regions," said Regional Development Minister Jim Anderton.

"I know that in both regions the partnerships will have significant benefit to local people through the Regional Partnerships Programme.

"The ideas that each plan needs will come from local people committed to making their regional economy work," said Jim Anderton.

The partnership grants can be up to $100,000 for regional plans and up to $100,000 for making sure the plans can be implemented (capability building). Funding of up to $2 million per region is available to contribute to major regional initiatives that come out of the strategies developed in the first two stages.
