Inclusive growth attracts star studded line-up

The largely discredited and out of fashion ‘trickle down’ effect has been supplanted by global calls for ‘inclusive growth’. The OECD defines inclusive growth as

Economic growth that creates opportunity for all segments of the population and distributes the dividends of increased prosperity, both in monetary and non-monetary terms, fairly across society.”

Fast becoming a political priority in New Zealand, the notion of inclusive growth will occupy the minds of NZ’s leading economic development professionals at the upcoming Economic Development Conference ‘Mahi Tahi’.

International experts on inclusive growth such as Ben Lucas of MetroDynamics (UK), Craig Richard, President of the International Economic Development Council (USA) and Ben Katz from the Brookings Institute (USA) will share stories of the inclusive growth journey in their countries and contribute to the thought leadership of NZ’s journey.

NZ based speakers at the Conference include; Sir Mark Solomon presenting on NZ’s changing demographics; Alan Johnson, author of the Salvation Army’s ‘State of the Nation’ Report, Dr David Wilson, presenting on inclusive growth in the regions and Benje Patterson from Infometrics presenting options for measuring inclusive growth.

And in recognition of the pressures our ED community is under, EDNZ has invited the highly entertaining and insightful Australian presenter, Rob Edwards to speak on strategies for coping with stress.
