The Digital Technologies ITP sets out a vision and actions across focus areas to support the transformation of the digital technologies sector.
ITP at a glance
There are four immediate focus areas:
- Growing export success – growing the export potential of New Zealand’s digital technology companies, with an initial focus on Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) firms (and game development as a future priority sub-sector).
- Telling our tech story – showcasing the scope and potential of digital technologies in New Zealand to both overseas and domestic audiences.
- Enhancing the skills and talent pipeline – equipping more New Zealanders, from a wider variety of backgrounds, with the technical and soft skills needed to work and thrive in the digital technologies sector, and to grow businesses in the sector (as well as other sectors now reliant on digital technologies).
- Enriching Māori inclusion and enterprise – promoting and supporting activity that enhances Māori leadership and participation in the digital technologies sector and appropriately builds on mātauranga Māori.
