Join us for our Speaker Series with Dr. Ganesh Nana to find out more about the Commissions aims to lift New Zealand’s productivity and, as a result, lift the wellbeing of New Zealanders.
Ganesh took up the position of Chair of the Productivity Commission Te Kōmihana Whai Hua o Aotearoa after 22 years at the consultancy Business and Economics Research Limited (BERL). His work at BERL covered a broad range of projects. His highlight was efforts in strengthening relationships with Māori entities and organisations and building an understanding of te ōhanga Māori.
In 2018 he was appointed a member of the Government established Welfare Expert Advisory Group, which reported back in 2019 with Whakamana Tangata – Restoring Dignity to Social Security in New Zealand.
Ganesh believes economics is fundamentally about people and is best reflected in our collective role as kaitiaki o taonga.
