Locally Owned & Operated - Why is this important?
We need to think about where the money we spend is going, and make sure we support those businesses that are based in our region. Locally owned businesses employ local people, use local services and often buy locally too.
Some of the profit made by companies based in New Zealand with foreign ownership or foreign interests ends up overseas. Although on a one off basis that might not seem like such a big deal, on a nationwide scale that adds up to billions of dollars every year. That money is usually removed permanently from the New Zealand economy. A 100% Locally / New Zealand owned and operated business is far more likely to keep, and spend their profits in the region and within New Zealand - and we think that's worth fighting for.
How will supporting a 100% NZ business benefit me?
Every dollar kept in New Zealand helps our economy. The business that makes the profit is taxed by our government, which in turn spends that money on things like health, roading and schooling etc. The more money the business makes, the more jobs they create, which helps our unemployed. The trickle down effect then spreads the money those employed kiwis make onto other 100% New Zealand owned and operated businesses, which then helps them too and starts the whole process over again.
So support our region, support our local economy and support local business where you can. For more information or to use our local services, please contact us.
