2020 Work Programme
The McGuinness Institute is fortunate to be able to set its work programme in response to where we think we can deliver value. This means that the observations made throughout 2019 shape our work programme for 2020. We remain flexible throughout the year to ensure that our focus remains on exactly what we believe is most important for the long-term future of New Zealand. Below is a map of our 2020 work programme. Learn more about our observations from previous work programmes here.
