Towards a high-tech clean-tech economy

November 17, 2011

In the last few days leading into the New Zealand general election, the signals coming from each of the major parties is encouraging. The National, Labour and the Greens are all pledging major investment into Science, Innovation and Technology to raise the productivity of the economic and transition the country to a high technology and high value add economy. The Greens are putting a real strong emphasis on the creation of clean-tech high-tech jobs.

While they each have different takes on how to fund and deliver this investment, it has to be incredibly encouraging to have this consensus among the major parties. This investment will lower the entry barriers for the companies wanting to practically step into this space.

What do you think? Is there more government could do?
