A real expert in town




I have known Goran Roos for some time as an academic that understands the role of manufacturing in the community and how manufacturing fits in the world. He has not been seduced by the post-industrial thinking and has a wide background in countries that have grown onshore activity to their betterment. So when the opportunity arose to get Goran in front of newly elected councilors I jumped at the chance. The message is clear, in small nations that are export dependent government has a necessary and vital role, not in picking winners, but creating the conditions for global winners to emerge.

Further manufacturing has a vital part to play in adding value to raw material streams, waste streams and in its own right, a failure to engage the added value activity will see activity bleed offshore. Poor policy accelerates the loss and good policy can reverse the flow. It is clear New Zealand is bleeding activity  and policy needs to change to encourage onshore investment supporting the emergence of global winners, more certainty around the exchange rate is the first step down the path to more onshore activity.
