Auckland is New Zealand’s dominant economic centre, leading national population and productivity growth. However, there is little detailed analysis into the nature of the sub-regional economic roles and connections within the Auckland regional economy.

This research examines the main economic linkages (labour market, transport and firms linkages) within the Auckland city-system and identifies the different economic structures/roles in different parts of the city. It also examines where Auckland’s key industries are located to provide a sense of the city’s industrial geography.

This report was prepared by Ascari Partners Ltd and Richard Paling Consulting for the NZ Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment.
