Substantial share of national Māori economy in Auckland
5th August 2015
An asset base of $23b means Auckland Māori entities and businesses hold over half of the national Māori economy’s asset base reveals a new report released today on the Auckland Māori economy.
Chairman of the Independent Māori Statutory Board, David Taipari says, “The national Māori Economy has seen considerable growth since 2010 with a $5.7b increase in the asset base. This report highlights significant opportunities for further growth that we want to share.”
The report, commissioned by the Independent Māori Statutory Board, was completed by well-known economist Shamubeel Eaqub from the New Zealand Institute of Economic Research. The report identifies the size, issues and opportunities that the Auckland Māori economy provides.
