Auckland’s Māori economy revealed as a powerful and growing force

Submitted by on August 10, 2015 – 4:00 am


Auckland Maori businesses and entities are a formidable force in our largest city according to new research.

Auckland Tourism, Events and Economic Development (ATEED) has welcomed the New Zealand Institute of Economic Research’s report, The Auckland Māori Economy, commissioned by the Independent Māori Statutory Board.

The report reveals that Auckland Māori entities and businesses had assets of $23 billion in 2013, while the Māori economy accounted for about 5 per cent or $4 billion of the regional gross domestic product.


The second Māori Economic Growth Forum will be held early next year, following a successful inaugural event in June 2014.

More than 100 iwi representatives, business leaders and Māori SME owners attended the 2014 forum, where they shared ideas and made important connections to grow their businesses.

ATEED provides a range of services for Māori businesses, including capability building and connection to relevant business support activities. It also runs a Māori tourism development programme, supporting businesses with market intelligence and start-up advice through to visitor and export opportunities.
