MBIE karakia

Tāwhia tō mana kia mau, kia māia.
Ka huri taku aro ki te pae kahurangi, kei reira te oranga mōku.
Mā mahi tahi, ka ora, ka puāwai.
Ā mātau mahi katoa, ka pono, ka tika.
Tihei Mauri Ora!

Retain and hold fast to your mana, be bold, be brave.
We turn our attention to the future,
that’s where the opportunities lie.
By working together we will flourish and achieve greatness.
Taking responsibility to commit to doing things right.
Tihei Mauri Ora!
