Our performance

Our strategic intentions are underpinned by our purpose and outcomes framework. To pursue these goals, MBIE focuses on five outcome areas. This section of the report provides information on our progress towards these outcomes.

A suite of outcome indicators were developed for our refreshed outcome framework and included in our Statement of Intent 2018–2022. Outcome indicators and our output performance measures are different ways of assessing performance and therefore cannot necessarily be looked at together.

Our output performance measures assess whether we have achieved specific services or functions that collectively support the overall achievement of our outcomes. These services and functions tend to be under our direct influence and over a shorter time period.

Our outcome indicators represent movement towards our longer-term goals and are trend-based. They need to be viewed over the long term (multi-year) and are not wholly within MBIE’s control. However, they provide a view of whether we are moving in the right direction towards the outcomes.

Grow New Zealand – Hīkina Whakatutuki

What success looks like.

Outcome One: Prosperous and adaptable people, sectors, and regions

In the future, New Zealand’s economy will have a different mix of sectors, jobs and skills. We will help communities to adapt and to benefit from the changes as we move to a knowledge-intensive, low-emissions economy.

Outcome Two: People are skilled and engaged in safe and fulfilling work

People need work that provides fair pay. But work is more than simply income; it can also give people a sense of purpose and allow them to develop skills, experience and social connections.

Outcome Three: Informed consumers and businesses interacting with confidence

The Government promotes fair and thriving markets by setting rules and defining rights that allow businesses to operate effectively and protect people from harm.

Outcome Four: Value is sustainably derived from the natural environment

New Zealand’s natural environment is important to our sense of identity and has great cultural and recreational significance. It also supports much economic activity. Some of our biggest contributors to export growth, such as tourism and the primary sector, rely heavily on using the natural environment.

Outcome Five: A dynamic business environment fostering innovation and international connections

New Zealand companies need investment and the right connections to be able to imagine more, produce more and achieve more for New Zealand.
