About the dialogue

The New Zealand government is developing a Digital Strategy for Aotearoa.

The Strategy will set out the goals, priorities and activities for the next 2 to 5 years, along with longer term results (out to 2031 and beyond).

All New Zealanders were encouraged to join a conversation and “have their say” through virtual hui, via written submissions or by joining the online discussion using this Dialogue site.

Submissions closed on 10 November 2021. The input and feedback is now being considered by a joint agency team and will be used to help inform the development of a Digital Strategy for Aotearoa.

The intention will be to publish the Digital Strategy for Aotearoa during 2022.
