We continue to be the voice of our industry. Positively influencing political, economic, social systems and institutes through robust research that informs policy change for our members.
Our industry landscape is an ever changing one. So ensuring the best interests of our member remains at the forefront of our governments mind is crucial.
Our members have asked us to lead the charge on policy change for our industry. And as a research association, we’ve responded by providing the facts needed to help advocate for this change.
And to hit the right balance, we’ve limited our work in this space to topics that we’re competent in and can deliver supportive research for. Handing those projects which fall outside of this scope to partners’ best suited to assist such as Metals NZ, the Manufacturers Network or the Employers and Manufacturers Association.
We’re a strong supporter of Metals NZ – and they of us. Our research is often a key metric in informing their submissions and policy formulation. And in turn, the sector receives a strong overarching voice for all metal industry interests.
We should be conscious of the fact that only a strong unified voice can achieve a sustainable industry. Supporting Metals NZ in achieving this change is key if we want to make a positive difference in the future.
