The Ministry has teams around New Zealand so that we can easily connect with Pacific communities on the ground. Our teams are based in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch and travel to communities throughout New Zealand.

Check out the maps on this page to find the Ministry team nearest you.


The work we do

The regional teams build strong connections and networks in Pacific communities, so we can effectively empower and support community enterprise and the sharing of information on government policy and initiatives. 

Our regional offices are the Ministry’s strongest link with Pacific communities. We engage with Pacific communities to develop good knowledge of their aspirations, issues and possible solutions.  This engagement informs policy development.
