The Auckland economy

Auckland is the major economic and financial centre of New Zealand. The city's economy is based largely on services and commerce. Most major international corporations have an Auckland office; the most expensive office space is around lower Queen Street and the Viaduct Basin in the Auckland Central Business District, where many financial and business services are located.

The largest commercial and industrial areas of the Auckland Region are in the southeast of Auckland City and the western parts of Manukau City, mostly bordering the Manukau Harbour and the Tamaki River estuary.

The primary employment industries of Auckland residents are professional, scientific and technical services (11.4 per cent), manufacturing (9.9 per cent), retail trade (9.7 per cent), health care and social assistance (9.1 per cent), and education and training (8.3 per cent).

Manufacturing is the largest employer in the Henderson-Massey, Howick, Mangere-Otahuhu, Otara-Papatoetoe, Manurewa and Papakura local board areas, retail trade is the largest employer in the Whau local board are, while professional, scientific and technical services are the largest employer in the remaining urban local board areas.

Auckland's nominal Gross Domestic Product (GDP) has topped $100 billion for the first time and is bigger than the combined GDP of New Zealand's second, third and fourth largest regional economies.

Statistics New Zealand says the Auckland region's GDP hit $101.4 billion last year, equivalent to 37.5% of NZ's total GDP. Statistics NZ's provisional figures show Aucklandís regional economy increased in value by $6.1 billion, or 6.4%, between March 2016 and March 2017.

The increase was driven by strong rises in the rental, hiring, and real estate services, construction, and finance and insurance services industries.

Aucklandís top 18 industries are each valued at more than $1 billion. It is by far the largest regional economy in New Zealand. Aucklandís share of the national economy is 37.5%.

Auckland lifestyle

New Zealand has first class education, health, and many other public services. Education, skills training, science and research are getting an especially high priority because of the critical role they play in high value economic growth. Creative people - artists, performers, writers, musicians and designers, are making a significant contribution to the economy.

New Zealand is a rapidly changing and developing nation, learning and applying that which is the best form from the old world, but avoiding the pitfalls and continuously seeking ways to improve its lifestyle.

New Zealanders' believe in all sincerity, that it is the finest and safest country on the face of the globe to bring up young families.

Auckland Hebrew Congregation

The Auckland Hebrew Congregation moved to the leafy suburb of Remuera in the middle of 2022 which provides more space for the Jewish preschool and Kadimah and makes it more accessible for those who observe the Sabbath to be within walking distance. The new location will also house a delicatessen and cafe and have allocated space for the many youth and volunteer organisations that contribute to the vibrant Jewish community here in Auckland.

We look forward to you joining us.
