Our vision: Even better lives through sustainable regional development

Great South - Southland's regional development agency

Great South was established as the Southland Regional Development Agency in March 2019. Committed to driving economic, social and cultural growth, Great South has a clear mandate to leverage opportunities for Southland in the areas of economic and business development, tourism and events.

This involves managing Southland’s regional tourism organisations and central government’s Regional Business Partner (RBP) Network, as well as delivering a range of events, regional initiatives, and government-funded contracts that pave the way for regional development.
