Local businesses essential to East Auckland

Did you know that the 2,000 businesses in East Tamaki employ 30,000 people and contributes $3 billion to New Zealand's economy.


This massive growth is partly thanks to the great work by the Greater East Tāmaki Business Association (GETBA).

This week I had the pleasure of sitting down with their General Manager Jane Tongatule to discuss the challenges and opportunities that their organisation and members face.

Jane and her team do a fantastic job of supporting the members and advocating on their behalf. Lots of great improvements thanks to their hard work but always more that Council can do better to help support this essential commercial and industrial area.
