New Zealand: Pioneering Ethical and Sustainable Digital Tech

The goal is for New Zealand to be recognised globally as a pioneer in ethical, innovative, inclusive and sustainable digital technologies. These technologies will drive economic prosperity, empower businesses to thrive and compete globally and enhance the overall well-being of all New Zealanders.

The Digital Technologies Industry Transformation Plan (ITP) is one of the eight that have been formulated with the aim of enhancing the performance of key sectors within the economy. These ITPs serve as comprehensive strategies to drive transformation and foster collaboration between the government and the industries involved.

Through the Digital ITP, a lasting partnership is forged between the government and digital industries, establishing a solid platform for ongoing collaboration and cooperation. This partnership recognises the critical role that the digital technologies sector plays in driving economic growth, innovation, and competitiveness.

By fostering collaboration between the government and digital industries, it is anticipated that the Digital ITP will contribute to an increase in export activities. This, in turn, will bolster economic growth and strengthen the overall performance of the digital technologies sector. The emphasis on export activities signifies the recognition of the global opportunities that exist for New Zealand businesses in the digital domain.

The government is optimistic about this action because, over the past few years, the engagement of Digital Technologies ITP has been proving positive in the digital technologies sector in New Zealand. ITP made a significant contribution of US$ 7 billion to the country’s GDP in 2021. It has been growing at twice the annual rate of the wider economy since 2016.

Henceforth, through strategic initiatives and concerted efforts, the Digital ITP seeks to enhance the capabilities and competitiveness of the digital technologies sector, enabling it to thrive in the international market. This entails investing in research and development, promoting innovation, fostering talent development, and creating an enabling environment for businesses to flourish.

In looking ahead, the future of the Industry Transformation Plans (ITPs) will encompass four key focus areas: growing export success, tech storytelling, uplifting the skills and talent pipeline, and enriching Māori inclusivity in enterprises. These areas have been identified as critical components in driving the advancement of Aotearoa New Zealand’s digital technology sector.

Looking beyond these immediate focus areas, the future areas of emphasis within the ITP encompass data-driven innovation, artificial intelligence, and government procurement. These emerging focus areas hold immense potential for driving technological advancements, fostering innovation, and shaping the digital landscape. By strategically investing in these areas, the ITP aims to position Aotearoa New Zealand as a global leader in cutting-edge technologies and ensure a sustainable and prosperous future for the nation.

Furthermore, government procurement always plays a crucial role in supporting digital technology advancements. By accelerating the growth of the digital sector, this ITP not only drives economic expansion but also plays a transformative role in shaping New Zealand’s economy to be diversified, lower in emissions, higher in wages, and more resilient, aligning with the goal of building a sustainable and prosperous future for the nation. Effective government procurement processes create opportunities for technology providers, stimulate economic growth, and drive technological advancements across sectors.
