WHY DO WE HAVE TO CHANGE?

  • Our Economy has traditionally relied on Farming and Forestry
  • The current Forestry industry downturn has already had a significant negative impact on jobs
  • Farming is cyclical with an ongoing downward pressure on jobs as the industry continues to try and reduce costs
  • Results - we have been losing population e.g. Tokoroa lost 6.7% of population between 1996 and 2001 
  • We therefore have to diversify - if we keep on doing what we’ve always done, we will get the same results, i.e. we HAVE to transform our Economy
  • Best-practice modern economies use “New Economy” concepts
  • In the New Economy it is not the biggest or the strongest that survive – it is those that adapt the fastest (Darwinism)
