The Chatham Islands Council engaged Martin Jenkins to deliver a study on the economic opportunities for the Chatham Islands.

The purpose of the reports is to:

  • support investment decisions on major infrastructure investment
  • identify what other investment and actions are required to ensure sustained growth opportunities(eg institutional, industry, social)
  • provide an evidence base, characterising the Chatham Islands economy

The report also provides relevant information on the potential of the islands that can support/inform the iwi settlement process.
