Developing a Digital Strategy for Aotearoa
The New Zealand government is developing a Digital Strategy for Aotearoa.
The Strategy will set out the goals, priorities and activities for the next 2 to 5 years, along with longer term results — out to 2031 and beyond. The government is committed to continuing to engage on progress and direction.
A discussion document was made available for public submissions from 6 October to 10 November 2021. It was built around 3 key themes that could form the structure for the Digital Strategy: Mahi Tika — Trust, Mahi Tahi — Inclusion, Mahi Ake — Growth.
It also proposed to focus on each theme to achieve a vision of:
Te whakaāhei i te puāwaitanga me te taurikura o te katoa o Aotearoa i roto i te ao matihiko.
Enabling all of Aotearoa New Zealand to flourish and prosper in a digital world.

Thank you — submissions have closed
Thank you to everyone who participated in the kōrero on the discussion document in October and early November 2021.
It was fantastic to hear from hundreds of New Zealanders across the country who:
- attended virtual hui
- made written submissions by email and post
- added their ideas and comments through our online engagement tool.
A huge number of ideas was received that will be pulled together and shared.
Keep an eye on this page to find out what New Zealanders have been telling us. A summary of submissions will be published when it has been completed.
The input and feedback are now being considered by a joint agency team and will be used to help inform the development of a Digital Strategy for Aotearoa.
The joint agency team comprises representation from the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment, Department of Internal Affairs, Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet, and Stats NZ.
The intention is to publish the Digital Strategy for Aotearoa in early 2022.
