Understanding the economy of Kaikōura


Council provides free access to economic analysis and forecasts through an informetrics service. The goal is to help local businesses and those who may be looking to invest in our district understand the economic forces which affect their businesses or organisations. The information also helps inform Council’s planning, policy, and strategic decisions and may also be of interest to our community, schools and NGO’s for research projects or planning how to deliver their services.
