The Māori Primary Sector Forum

Ngā Pouwhiro Taimatua has been established and had its first hui in May 2021.

About us

Ngā Pouwhiro Taimatua (the Māori Primary Sector Forum) has been established to advise the Government on how it can best grow the Māori primary sector economy and address the economic and social impacts of COVID-19 in line with the roadmap.

The forum works with MPI to identify priorities for focus.
