Transforming the Pacific Business Trust
Pacific peoples make an important contribution to New Zealand's economy. That can and should be developed further.
Budget 2019 supports this with $11.2 million over four years to increase the capability and capacity of the Pacific Business Trust to expand the delivery of a range of business services, and support industry and community economic development activities focused on growing Pacific businesses and job opportunities throughout Aotearoa and beyond.
It will include research, monitoring and evaluation of Pacific peoples' contribution to New Zealand's economy.
