- 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.
