Wellington Mayor Establishes Mayoral Business Group

The Mayoral Business Group pulls together leaders from a range of key sectors like retail, hospitality, tech, property development and the creative sector.

“Wellington is going through significant change. We have number of transformational projects underway like the Courtenay Place upgrade, Civic Square redevelopment, Paneke Poneke and a host of other changes,” says Mayor Tory Whanau.

“The city is also facing external challenges like rising cost of living and public sector cuts that require new ways of thinking and working from Council and the business sector alike.

“It’s important to me that our local businesses have an active role in shaping and delivering the transformation of our city.

“They will give feedback directly to me on a range of upcoming Council projects and have the opportunity to put new ideas on the table to deal with our city’s challenges.

“Our first meeting was extremely constructive, and we will be meeting monthly to continue working towards a bright future for Wellington” says Mayor Whanau.
