Sunday Business and Best of the Week

Andrew Patterson
Grant Walker

NBR Radio has teamed up with Spotify to bring Sunday Business to its podcast platform. You can also listen on iTunesSoundCloud and in other podcast apps.

We review the week on the markets with Grant Davies of Hamilton Hindin Green.

Earlier this week Fletcher Building has just reported an 80% drop in annual net profit to just $94 million.

The two biggest contributors to the profit fall were the $292 million loss made by the company’s Building & Interiors unit and the $222 million write-down in the value of its Tradelink and Iplex Australia businesses.

Grant Walker speaks to NBR’s Jenny Ruth on the latest results.

Andrew Patterson speaks to Hila Oren, CEO of Tel Aviv Foundation and the founder and CEO of Tel Aviv Global and Tourism.

She discusses the growing importance of global cities and why New Zealand’s major cities should seek to emulate this trend.
