NZTech Manifesto 2023

NZTech believes there are specific areas the Government should focus on to enable and grow Aotearoa as a Digital Nation. While not an exclusive list, these actions are aligned with the Digital Tech ITP and should be considered by any incoming Government.

The manifesto outlines six key areas:

• Education

• Digital Inclusion

• Sustainability

• Digital Safety

• Growing exports

• Lifting productivity
