Digital economy work programme
The ever-evolving digital world is impacting on almost all aspects of New Zealanders’ lives. ICT is changing the way businesses and government operate, how education and healthcare are delivered, and how people and communities interact.
The Digital Economy team works to support the growth of New Zealand’s digital sector and the uptake and smart use of ICT across the economy, as well as working with the Department of Internal Affairs on digital inclusion and digital government issues.
