The Pacific community is young, vibrant and growing fast. We’re focused on the areas that they tell us are important.
Pacific families are now leading the country in vaccination uptake and we’ve seen an almost 30 per cent increase in NCEA Level 2 achievement. More of our young people are entering and succeeding in tertiary education.
We’re recognising our young people’s success through the Prime Minister’s Pacific Youth Awards, the Toloa STEM scholarships and support for Polyfest.
It is important that Government services reflect the communities they serve, so National is also working with key agencies to grow Pacific talent in the public sector and challenge the private sector to do the same.
We’re working to ensure Pacific families are healthier and that our young people are prepared for the opportunities of the future. We’re also committed to supporting Pacific businesses to grow and reach their full potential.
