Co-operative enterprise in a time of COVID-19

As New Zealand comes to the end of its first week in lockdown, Co-operative Business New Zealand (NZ Co-op) has reached out to their members to provide support during this period of uncertainty. This includes the following links for government assistance -

The Co-operative Business New Zealand 2020 Leaders’ Forum was cancelled due to the risks of the COVID-19 virus.  In lieu of the forum, NZ Co-op produced a webinar with relevant experts sharing their insights on the macro and micro economic impacts of COVID 19, including the impact on global supply and supply chains of food and agriculture.  MP Michael Wood also participated and gave an update from the Government, as at 19 March.
