Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment

Our purpose at the Ministry of Business, Innovation & Employment is to grow New Zealand for all. This growth will occur through Kiwi ingenuity and innovation, not at the cost of our environment or the safety of our workplaces.

Our Maori identity – Hikina Whakatutuki – roughly means “lifting to make successful”. We can achieve this by creating a healthy business environment, upskilling the workforce and sustainable management of our resources.
