We look forward to working constructively with this new combination, as we strive to help business succeed, says Kim Campbell, CEO, EMA.
"With the New Zealand economy in sound shape, and the growth forecasts looking like they’ll be north of three per cent next year, the prospects for business are positive heading into 2017.
"However, with growth comes challenges. We see that in the skills shortage, we see that with infrastructure investment and around having an environment which enables growth.
"We look forward to working with Mr English and his team in regard to these business challenges," says Mr Campbell.
