Big Picture Thinker

In 2013 CDC revised the Christchurch Economic Development Strategy.

The purpose of Christchurch Economic Development Strategy (CEDS) is to identify long term growth goals and priorities to 2031 that will create a stronger economy and better quality of life.

Our vision for the economy of Christchurch is that in 2031 Christchurch is recognised as the best place for business, work, study and living in Australasia.
