The Waikato Mayoral Forum, consists of the Mayors of local councils in the Waikato region, and the chair of the Waikato Regional Council.
Waikato Mayoral Forum Chair and Matamata-Piako District Mayor Hugh Vercoe says the package of investment signals the importance of the Waikato to New Zealand’s economic growth.
