NZIER’s Auckland office open and ready for ‘uglies’

10 March 2015

Prime Minister, the Right Honourable John Key formally opened the Auckland office of the New Zealand Institute of Economic Research (NZIER) on 5 March 2015.

The Prime Minister spoke about the importance of contestable advice in policy making. He believed New Zealand was on the cusp of something special, and that organisations like NZIER can play a key role in realising that vision.     

Laurence Kubiak, NZIER’s Chief Executive, said “The opening of NZIER’s Auckland office is an important step in our organisation’s proud 56-year history. Our Auckland clients will now have better access to NZIER’s stable of over 20 expert business economists”.
“This is crucial at a time when these clients are facing increasingly complex challenges – or ‘uglies’ as we like to call them – when making decisions. We are confident that our brand of independent, impartial and rigorous analysis will help Auckland organisations make better decisions and deliver greater prosperity”, Kubiak noted.
