Our Pacific policy team

Find out more about our Pacific policy team at the Ministry of Business, Innovation & Employment (MBIE).

Tupu Tai is delivered annually by our Pacific policy team.

The team works collaboratively within MBIE and across the public sector to co-create opportunities for positive change – supporting the economic aspirations of Pacific peoples to share in New Zealand's prosperity.

The team seeks to achieve this goal in three ways:

  • working in partnership with the Ministry for Pacific Peoples and a wide-range of MBIE teams to help shape high-quality strategic advice designed to improve outcomes for Pacific peoples
  • partnering with a range of agencies to deliver initiatives that support improvements in Pacific workforce development, and
  • leading initiatives that strengthen our Pacific cultural capability, including increased awareness of Pacific peoples’ perspectives and values.
