Parliament trade hui expected to be largest yet

Parliament trade hui expected to be largest yet

Parliament building

Te Taumata is facilitating one of the most significant global trade hui to be held in Aotearoa, bringing together government ministers and officials with top Māori business leaders from across the motu.

Held at Parliament, this hui will provide a platform to:

  • Discuss how Māori will seize the incredible new opportunities arising from UK and EU Free Trade Agreements (FTA)
  • Co-ordinate the efforts and resources of government ministries to fast-track FTA opportunities for Māori

Alongside Māori and political leaders, international ambassadors, trade commissioners and government ministries will be in attendance.

There will be limited space to attend in person, however Te Taumata will livestream the hui for those who are interested but cannot attend. Please get in touch to ensure you have access to all our resources.

It is crucial Māori continue to be part of the global trade conversation, particularly as we navigate this fast-changing economic environment.

Since Te Taumata was established, our concerted efforts have helped drive unprecedented levels of engagement between Māori and Government regarding the Māori economy and global trade.

Our upcoming hui, which will be the sixth held since 2020, is expected to garner new levels of interest and open doors to unexplored collaboration opportunities.

Keep an eye out for updates as details are finalised.
