Enterprise Great Lake Taupo is the Economic Development agency for the Taupo District
The Taupo economy is growing steadily, with record numbers of jobs, business units and population. Our economy has recorded GDP growth figures above NZ average for the past five years and we predict this trend will continue for the foreseeable future.
We are seeing our population steadily increase as the Taupo district is proving a popular choice for those wishing to exit the city and seek a work/life balance. We have new businesses opening, existing businesses expanding and our major industries developing.
The district is poised to maintain long-term sustainable growth, and this strategy is intended to shape and define our role in escalating these opportunities to better the lives of all who live here
