How well prepared is Aotearoa-New Zealand to adapt to major and persistent supply chain disruptions? What needs to change, to improve productivity and make our economy more resilient to supply chain shocks – wherever they come from? 

The Government has asked the Productivity Commission to undertake an inquiry into the resilience of the New Zealand economy to supply chain disruptions. 

The Government wants to identify what policies and interventions can enhance the resilience of New Zealand’s economy and living standards to persistent disruptions.
