National has invested over $14b into Canterbury since the earthquakes, with a further $3.5b committed through to 2021.

We are already seeing strong signs of progress through increased tourism, economic activity and housing affordability in the region.

To keep things on track, we need a stable government and a strong economy. Canterbury’s low unemployment rate and strong economic growth will continue to support Canterbury as a central hub of the South Island.

Our focus for the next three years is on continuing to build the anchor projects, giving Cantabrians a clear plan for the future, and providing a smooth transition to locally-led leadership.
