President's Invitation

It is my pleasure to invite you to Wellington for the 60th Annual Conference of the New Zealand Association of Economists. It will be held at Rutherford House on Pipitea Campus at Victoria University, Wellington.

The conference committee for this event comprises Ian Duncan, Lydia Cheung (Auckland University of Technology), Peter Tait (Lincoln University), and Andrea Menclova (University of Canterbury). Their efforts, supported by On-Cue and Motu, are greatly appreciated.

I wish to acknowledge the financial support of our major sponsors. The support of Treasury, the Reserve Bank, and Statistics New Zealand enables us to host highly-regarded overseas speakers to provide keynote addresses.

Your contribution is valued. By coming to the conference, sharing your research and engaging with other economists, you are contributing to the success of the conference, the Association and the profession in New Zealand. I am sure that you will find it most enjoyable and worthwhile.

Mark Holmes
NZAE President
