Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE)

MBIE’s purpose is to Grow New Zealand for All.

We will do this by helping businesses to become more productive and internationally competitive, and by increasing opportunities for all New Zealanders to contribute to the economy.

This means providing more jobs and increasing the opportunities for New Zealanders to participate in more productive and higher paid work. Growth for all also means providing better quality housing that is safe and affordable for New Zealanders.
