By 2025, Wellington will be the most prosperous, liveable and vibrant region in Australasia.
Bold, aspirational and provocative, this vision challenges WREDA to lead a new phase of transformational change for Wellington's economy. The vision demands that Wellington exceed expectations, compete in a global context, and become internationally recognised as a leading region.
The vision also carries the notion that prosperity, vibrancy and liveability are symbiotic. Each quality enhances the other two, and success requires coordinated management of all three.
