The Local and National Government already owns NZ$ 200 billion of infrastructure assets, which by 2025 will reach an estimated expenditure of NZ$ 110 billion. Christchurch is also showing shortages in the number of skilled construction workers for the ongoing rebuilding of the city, post the 2011 earthquake.
