Connectivity

How strong are New Zealand’s connections to the world? Are they sufficient for us to take advantage of the opportunities of the new economy, and what could be done if they are not.

By ‘connections’ we mean physical connections (like planes, boats and submarine cables) but also flows of goods, services, people and capital, and, in particular, business relationships.

This is the third Moxie Session, held Monday 11 March 2013 in Auckland.
