Ngā putanga | Our outcomes

The five outcomes in our Strategic Intentions 2021–2025 set out our contribution to making Aotearoa New Zealand a better place.

This section explains work MBIE carried out in 2021/22 to contribute towards the achievement of these five outcomes. Outcome indicators and output performance measures are different ways of assessing performance.

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 often reflect the efforts of many actors, including MBIE. They provide a view of whether the indicators are moving in the right direction. All outcome indicators are reported using the most up-to-date data available at the time of analysis. An example of our detailed trend analysis is provided for each outcome, in the format of a graph.

Our output performance measures assess whether we have achieved specific services or functions that collectively support the overall achievement of our outcomes.
