Treasury Guest Lecture: Productivity by the numbers

Treasury Guest Lecture Productivity Commission
23 August 2021



The Treasury, Level 3, 1 The Terrace

Productivity matters for wellbeing. Achieving higher productivity – producing more with what we have (people, knowledge, skills, produced capital, and natural resources) – means there is more to go around for current and future generations. Yet New Zealand’s productivity record is poor.

At this Treasury Guest Lecture, Prof. Gail Pacheco and Dr. Philip Stevens from the New Zealand Productivity Commission will look at the relationship between productivity and wellbeing, dig into the numbers behind New Zealand’s ailing productivity, and look at priority actions to lift New Zealand’s productivity.

Following the lecture will be a discussion with panellists Simon Wakeman from Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment, and Bryan Chapple from the Treasury.
