E hika mā, kuhu mai ki to tatou whare!
We’re the government’s first port of call for trade discussions with Māori. With a network of more than 700+ whānau followers, we work with Māori businesses to deliver better trade outcomes for Māori and a more prosperous future for our whānau and communities.
Māori AND TRADE
Covid-19 has triggered unprecedented change where one-in-four whānau jobs are now at risk.
Māori businesses will play a significant role in post-lockdown recovery, employing whānau to produce products and services to be traded again with other countries.
It is through hard work and knowledge that we will achieve.
Mā te kaha o te mahi i roto i te mātauranga, ka whakawhiwhia.
– Danny Poihipi (Te Whanau a Apanui)
