On 15 October 2015, the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment released its 2015 Regional Economic Activity Report.

The Regional Economic Activity Report presents economic data on New Zealand’s 16 regions. It highlights the strengths and challenges each region faces. This year the publication includes a special feature on tourism to the regions.

As well as PDFs of the reports, an enhanced online web tool and a new mobile app for smartphones are available to download on the Ministry’s website.

The mobile app makes access to key economic information on regions easy and immediate for anyone with an interest in New Zealand regions, whilst the web tool enables comparison of regional data in maps and dynamic charts, and will be of special interest for analysts and anyone else wanting a more in-depth tool for exploring regional data.

Both the web tool and mobile app include information on commercial guest nights, tourism spend, international visitor nights and international visits.
