Economic Development Agencies (EDAs) are impartial local and regional bodies which each year spend over $150 million on the productive development of New Zealand’s economy.

This funding is secured through industry initiatives, territorial local authorities and central government projects.

EDAs nationally employ over 800 staff dedicated to directly delivering assistance to the frontlines of business in support of national strategies and local needs.

Each of the EDAs throughout New Zealand has evolved in response to local needs and resources.
