I hope every­one has had a safe, en­joy­able fes­tive pe­riod, with wha¯ nau and friends.

Ran­gita¯ ne o Manawatu¯ look for­ward to a re­ward­ing and ful­fill­ing 2019. Our in­vest­ment trust will be­gin some ma­jor prop­erty de­vel­op­ments in the city to con­trib­ute to em­ploy­ment and eco­nomic op­por­tu­ni­ties while cre­at­ing a re­turn for our ben­e­fi­cia­ries. This is an ex­cit­ing step in our post set­tle­ment de­vel­op­ment. Our set­tle­ment trust will be pro­vid­ing pro­grammes for our ben­e­fi­cia­ries in the kapa haka, te reo and ed­u­ca­tion space. Our fo­cus is on cre­at­ing a path­way through ed­u­ca­tion so our tauira can re­alise their full po­ten­tial, par­tic­i­pate fully in so­ci­ety and achieve whanau ora.

As tan­gata whenua, we take the stew­ard­ship role of our peo­ple se­ri­ously and are com­mit­ted to our re­gion’s iden­tity, growth and fu­ture.
