Under National, Māori are doing better in schools and becoming more skilled. Māori businesses are increasingly influential and internationally connected and they are an important part of New Zealand’s story and economic success.

Te Reo Māori and Māori culture are significant assets that promote the unique identity and place of Māori in New Zealand and our presence in the global community.

We are working with Māori to address social challenges and making significant progress on Treaty settlements. National’s relationship with the Māori Party and the Iwi Chairs Forum is pragmatic and has enabled us to resolve longstanding issues and make real progress.

We are building a more tolerant and prosperous country by working together.
