For the fourth straight quarter, The Bay of Plenty continues its run as New Zealand’s top-performing region in the latest ASB/Main Report Regional Economic Scoreboard.

Auckland remains in second place, but is snapping at the Bay’s heels for top spot.

The Hawke’s Bay proved to be this quarter’s biggest mover on the Scoreboard, moving up a star rating to four stars.
