Electra Business Breakfast – B2B networking – Sponsored by Electra
Nau mai haere mai Electra Business Breakfast is pleased to be welcoming the Finance Minister, Hon Grant Robertson. He has been quoted as saying, “Budget 2023 will focus on what matters most to New Zealanders, with the cost of living a top priority.” The budget will be delivered on Thursday 18 May, in the shadow of Cyclone Gabrielle and in a challenging fiscal environment.
The Government wants to keep the economy moving so they can continue to invest in creating a high wage, low emissions economy that will deliver for New Zealanders in good times and bad. Is this possible and what needs to be done with the tax system for a fairer platform for households and business?
Start thinking about your questions now for Minister Robertson as he will take questions at the end of his address. This Breakfast will be held in the Southward Theatre as it is likely to draw a large crowd.
See you there! Book early to avoid disappointment.
If circumstances were to change and Covid prevented us from operating, we will reschedule first and then transfer or refund tickets as needed. We encourage being fully boosted for you, your whānau, your community, and please don’t attend if you are feeling unwell. We look forward to seeing you all soon.
