Towards a Digital Strategy for New Zealand

Published: November 10, 2021

Stage: Ongoing

Priority: Medium

Submitting To: Department of Internal Affairs (DIA)

Issue for Business: The last time a nationwide digital strategy took place was 2005, which was updated in 2008. While BusinessNZ welcomes consultation on this new strategy, we believe the strategy itself is underwhelming. We are concerned that if the strategy does not cover all key bases, it will not lead to New Zealand harnessing its digital opportunities across the ecomomy.
