About Rising Economy Week

Why

Like the rest of the world, our region faces unprecedented challenges in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. Rising Economy Week 2020 is the culmination of the work of the Rising Economy Taskforce, which was convened by the South Island Prosperity Partnership in April 2020 to accelerate economic recovery and create the resiliency to withstand economic shocks.

As SIPP’s CEO Emilie de Rosenroll says, “The economy is about people.” Rising Economy Week is a collective effort to bring people together to discuss our future and to create paths of collaboration that will lead us into our next economy and strengthen us against future disruptions.

Together, we will rebound faster, dream bigger and prosper more.
