Priority One is the Western Bay of Plenty region's economic development organisation, established in 2001 by the Tauranga and Western Bay Of Plenty business community in partnership with the sub-region's local authorities. It was the first economic development organisation in New Zealand to be initiated by the business community and run along business principles of action and results.
Our job is to grow the economy of the region. We work with local authorities to ensure local government and business needs and aspirations are aligned. We actively encourage Bay of Plenty businesses to grow by the removal of roadblocks, ensuring the skills and experience required by industry are available locally, and active targeting of offshore businesses into the Western Bay of Plenty market.
Priority One has built up strong networks and valuable experience dealing with business migration and investment.
