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.

Business Supporter

CDC supports businesses with high-growth potential to get bigger and better, be more efficient, to invest wisely and export.

We have a focus on these growth sectors: Manufacturing, Technology, Agriculture and International Education.

New Ideas Enabler

Through CDC Innovation we enhance the Canterbury Regional Innovation System and invest in start-up companies (in association with powerHouse Ventures).

CDC Innovation is a Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE) supported initiative to accelerate the commercialisation of innovation in Canterbury.
