The Business Roundtable and the New Zealand Institute have agreed to merge to create a new public policy think tank, saying the country isn’t big enough to support two such bodies.
The merger will take effect from April 1 next year and the organisation has begun an international search for an executive director.
The Roundtable’s long-serving executive, Roger Kerr, died in October, having been involved in merger talks that began in February.
“The merger means the business community will have a strong, well-resourced voice to ensure the country makes the policy choices necessary to enable all New Zealanders to prosper,” Roundtable chairman Roger Partridge and Institute chairman Tony Carter said in a joint statement.
“We both share a vision of a competitive, open and dynamic economy, a flourishing business sector and a free, prosperous, fair and cohesive society,” they said.
