More good news for the Bay of Plenty region this week with ASB’s economic report showing we are now New Zealand’s best-performing region! This is the first time the Bay of Plenty has been at the top of the regional economic scoreboard, knocking Auckland off the mantle.  Here is the scoreboard for the regions:

ASB/Main Report Regional Economic Scoreboard (Q3, 2015):

  1. Bay of Plenty
  2. = Auckland
  3. = Northland
  4. Waikato
  5. Canterbury
  6. = Hawke’s Bay
  7. = Otago
  8. Southland
  9. = Tasman
  10. = Nelson
  11. Manawatu-Wanganui
  12. Gisborne
  13. Marlborough
  14. West Coast
  15. = Taranaki
  16. = Wellington

Over the last 12 months we have shared many articles about a surge in business confidence, a huge increase in employment in the region and a housing market boom for Tauranga and the surrounding areas.  All these factors have played a part in getting us to the top spot on the rankings.

Along with the economic boom we have seen a large increase in Aucklanders and Hamiltonians arriving in the region.  They have come for the jobs and the lifestyle that our stunning region has to offer. With current mortgage rates at record lows and further drops expected we can only expect more people to find their way to our sunny shores.
