Māori Development


- Associate Minister

I’m pleased to host Te Māngai Paho’s 25th Anniversary here at Parliament alongside Dr Eruera Tarena, Chair of Te Māngai Pāho.


It is an honour to be here with you today to launch Te Whare Ohaoha, the Waikato Region Māori Economic Development Action Plan Refresh.


The Wellbeing Budget focuses on ways to give Māori and Pacific peoples more scope to lift their own wellbeing. When Māori and Pacific peoples set their own wellbeing goals and aspirations and when we as a Government use our ability to change the system and help Māori and Pacific peoples achieve those aspirations – equality can start to be a reality.
