Join us at Auckland Conversations as international economic development champion Stephen Cheung and a panel of experts discuss Auckland's priorities for shared prosperity, quality jobs for all, economic development and international business engagement.
5:00pm: Networking & refreshments
Economic growth can often be accompanied by disparity, economic and social marginalisation. How do we change this and increase the living standards for all Auckland’s citizens? What will this mean and how will our jobs, vocational opportunities and economy change?
We would like to start a conversation about the challenges Auckland faces as an international city from an economic and prosperity perspective, in parallel with LA and Guangzhou.
Stephen Cheung is the Executive Vice President of Los Angeles Economic Development Corporation (LAEDC) and the President of World Trade Center Los Angeles (WTCLA). He leads investment attraction to the LA County region and facilitates successful location of new businesses, projects and deals from both international and U.S. investors into the region.
Stephen will share with us his aspirations and vision, and impressions on what it takes to be an international city focused on inclusive growth.
This Auckland Conversation is brought to you in partnership with Auckland Tourism, Events and Economic Development (ATEED) and with the support of Bank of New Zealand (BNZ)
