Pacific Economic Development

The Ministry of Business, Innovation & Employment’s (MBIE) purpose is to 'grow New Zealand for all.' MBIE supports Pacific communities’ economic development through better coordination and facilitation of economic development initiatives, and by working collaboratively with other government agencies.

Our Pacific Economic Strategy is led by our Pacific team and supported by work across the organisation.
