Genuine growth potential in a stable and secure environment with strong employment and income levels, means Wellington must be on the radar of any serious investor.

From technology and digital creativity, to primary industry and food production, the economy is diverse and export-focused. Partly thanks to the government sector, the Wellington economy is more resilient than the rest of the New Zealand's economy, and more able to withstand shocks such as falling commodity prices.
