The NZIER Economics Award for 2015 was presented to Dr Alan Bollard at NZIER’s AGM & dinner yesterday evening.

Accepting the award last night from Cebu in the Philippines where he is attending a meeting in his capacity as Executive Director of APEC, Dr Bollard said “It has been my good fortune to have been able to work in a range of economic policy areas over the past couple of decades, and to be working in a country, in institutions and with people who have wanted to ensure that they get the very best from economics and from economic theory to help New Zealand prosper and grow”.
