Te whai wāhi ki a Ngāi Māori mō ngā take ātea-ā-rangi | Engaging Māori on aerospace

Our plans to support the aerospace sector will be consistent with the Crown’s commitments under Te Tiriti o Waitangi.

We will foster partnerships with Māori in aerospace through:  

  • working with Māori businesses and collectives to use aerospace technologies to further regional and national economic development aspirations
  • ensuring Māori can excel in sector opportunities, employment and training
  • developing sector development initiatives that engage Māori expertise.

MBIE worked closely with a group of Māori experts in aerospace during development of the Strategy to determine the actions needed to support implementation. As a result of this work, we will undertake a specific analysis of current Māori participation and aspirations for the sector, as well as work on specific economic opportunities for Māori in aerospace. Updates on this work and further engagements with Māori on aerospace will be provided on the MBIE website.
