While we wait for the new Government’s establishment, our work continues! We’re working hard to ensure the tech sector is actively engaging across various agencies to support the creation of a digitally safer, more equitable, sustainable and prosperous Aotearoa New Zealand.
Tomorrow I’ll be in Wellington with members of the executive council of Digital Identity New Zealand (DINZ) and the team from the Department of Internal Affairs (DIA) tasked with rolling out the Digital Identity Services Trust Framework (DISTF). I’m looking forward to the opportunity to discuss raising market awareness of the critical importance of digital identity.
Later this week, back in Auckland, we are catching up with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade (MFAT) to discuss how best to support the many NZ Inc staff around the world so they understand the tech sector and become our global advocates.
Meanwhile, the final version of our report on a framework for a climate technology roadmap for New Zealand will also arrive in my inbox this week. This is even more important than ever, as despite all the effort, officials have recently announced that New Zealand will miss its 2025 Emissions Budget target.
Next week, I’ll be attending a workshop hosted by Callaghan Innovation on Web3 and the impact of debanking. This session is a follow up to the Debanking and its Implications for Aotearoa New Zealand’s Web3 Ecosystem report recently published by Callaghan. We need to resolve this in our local market or risk missing the benefits of these emerging technologies.
