Event Details





Wāiroa will receive $9.1 million from a wider Provincial Growth Fund (PGF) package to address the district’s “significant economic and social challenges”.

The package will benefit digital connectivity, business expansion, roading, and skills and employment initiatives, the Parliamentary Under-Secretary for Regional Economic Development Fletcher Tabuteau announced.

“The PGF is committed to lifting the productivity of towns like Wairoa that face high unemployment and an ageing population. The investments announced today will bring some relief to the much-needed infrastructure needs that will help this rural community lift its social and economic prospects,” Tabuteau said.
