We are the Ministry for Pacific Peoples, we bring the Pacific voice, perspective, and understanding to policy and initiatives.
The Ministry for Pacific Peoples is the Crown’s principal advisor on policies and interventions aimed at improving outcomes for Pacific peoples in Aotearoa.
By using our extensive networks with Pacific communities across the country, as well as our knowledge and understanding of Pacific people, cultures and values, we influence public policy, programme and service decisions affecting Pacific Aotearoa.
Pacific values are our anchor, with each generation weaving the foundations for the next to stand on. Pacific communities are innovative leaders within Aotearoa, the Pacific region and the world.
Realising our vision is critical for Pacific peoples. It is an investment in New Zealand’s future well-being and prosperity.
Our work and the impact we are making will help us to enable and foster this vision.
