Our vision is more Successful Pacific Peoples.
We want to make sure the journey of a Pacific child born today in New Zealand is a happy and successful one. We're working with partner agencies across the public sector to make sure every child thrives.
We have also launched a refreshed Pacific Vision after a year-long talanoa (engagement) process with over 2,500 Pacific peoples about their concerns, hopes and aspirations for the future.
Pacific Values are our anchor, with each generation weaving the foundation for the next to stand on. Pacific communities are leading innovations within Aotearoa, the Pacific region and around the world.
We are confident in our endeavours, we are thriving, resilient and prosperous Pacific Aotearoa.
