Investors wanting directions in the Maori economy can turn to a new guide launched today by Economic Development Minister Simon Bridges.
The Maori Economy Investor Guide was produced by KPMG with funding from the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment.
Mr Bridges told today’s He kai kei aku ringa – E rere Maori economy conference in Rotorua Maori have huge potential to lift the New Zealand economy.
He says the young and growing Maori population will form a large part of New Zealand’s future workforce.
He says Maori control over $15 billion in assets, with significant land holdings, and are diversifying in to other high value sectors.
