In 2015, Activate Tairāwhiti was launched, to lead local economic development and help Tairāwhiti businesses create more employment opportunities for our people. Trust Tairāwhiti brings our community trust and economic development agency together under one roof, to better assist the wellbeing of our people, the success of our businesses, and the future of our region.
We are passionate about creating a greater Tairāwhiti for everyone. Since 1993, we’ve invested more than $60million into Tairāwhiti to help grow our regional economy and support the wellbeing of our communities.
We want Tairāwhiti to be a welcoming place where we all live well, together.
Where children dream, communities unite, and futures inspire. Where people flourish, business booms, and tourism thrives. Where culture connects, relationships empower, and nature endures. Where opportunity, prosperity, and pride is shared with our people, our businesses, and our environment.
