Ka nui te mihi to everyone who recently took the time to complete our trade survey.

Surveys are just one of the tools Te Taumata uses to take the pulse of Māori business leaders and exporters, ensuring we continue to accurately represent the needs and aspirations of our people.

We have drawn the two lucky winners of our prize packs:

Lake Taupo Forest Management Ltd (Tohu Wines, Rewa range)

Kapuarangi Associates Ltd (Hī Mussel pack)

Moving forward, Te Taumata Innovation and Technology Officer Nicole Pakau will be in contact with each person who indicated interest in participating in future trade missions to clarify some responses and provide more detail.

All those who have registered will be ranked against the framework of possible trade missions sent through to MFAT which will result in a paper to the relevant ministers with recommendations from Te Taumata on suitable Māori businesses.

We will continue to keep you updated as we progress our kaupapa.
