This post is an unashamed plug for the Chamber, but I feel that they deserve it. In recent months I have been going along to their excellent series of early morning breakfasts held on the second Friday of most months at 6:30 am at The Petone Working Men’s Club.
In particular I especially enjoyed the April address by Dr John McDermott from the Reserve Bank, which was extremely insightful. Then last Friday was the address by Mayor Ray Wallace of Hutt City who spoke about what was happening in the area and how Hutt City might evolve.
Along with his speech, Mayor Wallace left attendees with a number of copies of a booklet Fresh Thinkers – Profiling Technology Businesses in the Hutt, the link takes you to the relevant web site for viewing and download.
I am ashamed to admit that until relatively recently I had not appreciated sufficiently the scale of business in the Hutt, nor just how many success stories we have here. It is fascinating and taking part in the varied Chamber activities has enabled me to appreciate this much more. Hutt Valley is a vital part of the NZ economy and has a major role to play in our future economic success.
