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.
Māori primary sector plan
Manatū Ahua Matua (Ministry for Primary Industries), in partnership with Ngā Pouwhiro Taimatua, released a detailed plan to support the Māori food and fibre sector in December 2022.
Ngā Pouwhiro Taimatua will provide strategic advice towards policy solutions and opportunities for how participants in the Māori primary sector can best realise the potential of their whenua, communities and primary sector economy.
