Invest in Northland


Northland is quickly developing a global reputation as a highly desirable place to invest, with unique competitive advantages across a range of industries and significant untapped productive potential.

It is a region with a rich history, and a very bright future. At the northernmost tip of New Zealand, the region boasts some of New Zealand’s most valuable natural assets, with a subtropical climate, fertile land, and some of the world’s most beautiful coastline. Northland features a diverse and buoyant economy, offering a wide range of opportunities for investment.

Northland is one of New Zealand's only subtropical regions; its climate and long coastline providing natural advantages for a range of sectors. Northland also offers a diverse range of investible opportunities derived from its primary and manufacturing sectors. Traditionally, the leading economic industries in Northland have been based around agriculture, horticulture, forestry and tourism. There is huge untapped potential to further strengthen these areas, in addition to other industries such as aquaculture, construction, manufacturing and marine industries. Sights are firmly set on maximising the economic potential of all productive industries in the region, and Northland has a great deal to offer to both individual and company investors.

New Zealand consistently ranks highly in the world for ease of doing business, and is currently first in the world for protecting minority investors, and lack of corruption. New Zealand provides a safe, stable and secure environment in which to do business, with comparatively low developed-country business costs, and a straightforward, business-friendly taxation system. Its labour costs are extremely competitive for a first-world country with a highly skilled and educated workforce. Northland combines New Zealand’s support for capital development and investment, with a naturally more laid back lifestyle that encourages a great work-life balance.
