Foreword from Carolyn Tremain, Secretary for Business, Innovation and Employment and Chief Executive.
We are the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE), Hīkina Whakatutuki. Hīkina means to uplift and Whakatutuki means to move forward, to make successful.
Our work touches on the daily lives of New Zealanders. We grow opportunities (Puāwai), act as a guardian and protect (Kaihāpai), and innovate and navigate towards a better future (Auaha).
People across MBIE deliver and support a number of services that touch on the daily lives of New Zealanders.
Our organisational strategy, Te Ara Amiorangi, informs the way we work. Te Ara refers to a pathway and Amiorangi to successfully navigating for the future to Grow Aotearoa New Zealand for All.
Each year, MBIE is provided with funding from the Government to deliver significant initiatives in response to current or ongoing challenges facing Aotearoa New Zealand.
