A prosperous Auckland economy will include more opportunities for Māori
, especially rangatahi (young Māori), to gain the essential skills to increase their employment and income levels and to help drive Auckland's economic growth.
Tāmaki Makaurau presents Māori with economic opportunities across many sectors. There is potential for innovation, entrepreneurship and increasing international business opportunities.
Māori business leaders, iwi, Māori collectives, local government and others in the private sector need to work together to take up commercial and digital opportunities.
Support systems for Māori business owners need to be more accessible and well-coordinated, and enable the Māori business ecosystem to flourish.
