    Cash for Southland from the Provincial Growth Fund

    Cash for Southland from the Provincial Growth Fund


    Regional Economic Minister Shane Jones has announced a multi-million dollar boost in Invercargill today.

    It includes around two million dollars for ten engineering firms - and 1.5 million to support Southlanders into local jobs through the Southland Youth Futures initiative.

    The engineering investment will go to projects such as New Zealand's largest scale 3D printer - and a trial to manufacture red seaweed into emission-reducing supplements for farm animals.

    Jones says it's about diversifying the region's economic base, and creating new opportunities.
