WORK WITH GOVERNMENT
Building a vibrant relationship between the industry and government while guiding & supporting critical decision making around the use of technology.
According to recent IDC research, an industry market analyst firm, the New Zealand Government spends 29% of all of New Zealand’s spending on ICT.
Add to this the impact of their policy levers across education, health and business and it becomes essential that there is a positive and vibrant relationship between the government and the technology industry.
As the preeminent voice for the technology sector, NZTech has established a strong working relationship with government and its business agencies.
NZTech continues to promote the increasing importance of the technology sector to the future prosperity of New Zealand and influence policies that help the continued growth of technology companies.
NZTech sits in on a number of review and reference groups to help provide industry input into government decision making, including:
- IRD Reference Panel
- MBIE ICT Skills Shortage Forum
- DIA Government ICT Strategy Review
- MBIE Digital Economy Work
