Welcome to the Government Economics Network (GEN)

A Wellington street at night, with streams of light

Established in 2011, GEN’s vision is excellent government policy for Aotearoa New Zealand. This means we see robust economic analysis and advice as a way to achieve this vision, rather than an end in itself.

GEN is a charitable organisation that provides a professional forum for learning, development and networking. We run a range of seminars, training, conferences and social events throughout the year to encourage the use of economics in public policy decision making and to stimulate debate and discussion on economic and public policy research. We aim to cater to economists and non-economists as well as both public and private sectors. We:

  1. Support economics training and professional development in the public sector for economists and non-economists.
  2. Develop linkages between economists across the private, public and academic sectors.
  3. Strengthen economic advice to government.
