Purpose of the Report
The purpose of reporting on Māori entrepreneur statistics for the Bay of Plenty region was to add value to Te Puni Kōkiri’s regional evidence base of Māori entrepreneurs in Te Moana a Toi and Te Arawa.
This information will contribute towards the region’s evidence base of Māori businesses and to help support Māori policy making decisions, fact sheets and regional profiles.
These statistics provide evidence of the importance of Māori entrepreneurs and their significant contribution to New Zealand’s economy. Also these statistics are an important contribution to the compilation of nationwide Māori commercial asset base statistics. 12
