The global economy is facing headwinds in the wake of continued uncertainty in overseas markets, but when we look around the globe the NZ economy is relatively well placed and has been supported by the strength of global commodity markets over the past few years, particularly in the dairy sector.
So how can NZ - its Government, its businesses, and its people - continue to capture the benefits of its unique position to drive increased growth and productivity in a shifting global marketplace?
The answer: lead from the middle.
Kiwi businesses with annual revenues of between $2 million and $50 million – the NZ Mid-Market – play a vital role in the success of the NZ economy, but tend to be under-recognised and under-serviced. Despite comprising only 4.6% of all NZ enterprise, in 2011 the Mid-Market employed almost a third of all full-time Kiwi workers*, and contributed over 31% of the total value added in the New Zealand economy.
