Over 5,000 Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE) people work across our 8 business groups from 46 offices within New Zealand and 14 overseas.

In 2019/20 we supported 18 portfolios and were responsible for $5.5 billion of expenditure.

We strive to grow New Zealand for all through economic performance and participation, ultimately improving the lives and living standards of New Zealanders. To do this, our purpose – Grow New Zealand for All – is underpinned by our five strategic outcomes:

Prosperous and adaptable people, sectors and regions

People are skilled and engaged in safe and fulfilling work

Informed consumers and businesses interacting with confidence

Value is sustainably derived from the natural environment

A dynamic business environment fostering innovation and international connections
