Our vision: Auckland as a global city.

  • In 2013 we will be an influential voice for all of Auckland, creating cross-sectoral solutions to the city's issues and
  • Focusing on a future beyond the electoral cycle helping New Zealand's only world-ranked city to achieve its potential for the region and the country

The Committee for Auckland (CFA) has played a prominent role in galvanising positive change for our city. Our members are all specialists in the city's issues and fervent advocates for its success. Having contributed significantly to the new shape of Auckland as one city, 2013 is the platform for a re-focused Committee to drive the agenda for Auckland as a world leading destination as well as the welcoming gateway to New Zealand. When Auckland achieves, the entire country reaps the benefits. Auckland produces some 20% of New Zealand's GDP and is home to 30% of the nation. A thriving Auckland is vital for New Zealand's economy.

Featured Project

The Maritime Auckland project will identify the potential of our harbours as an integrated resource to increase Auckland's total prosperity and economic performance.
