Ministry of Pacific Peoples – Vision session

The Ministry is working with Pacific peoples, youth, church leaders, disabled, women, men, leaders, business peoples, organisations, groups across NZ to conduct focus group and large group meetings to receive feedback from our peoples; we want the voice of our communities included in this work the Ministry is leading. 

 

We are looking at a shared Pacific Vision as an opportunity to recognise the changing situation for Pacific communities in NZ. 

Over 60% of Pacific are now born in NZ. 

One out of four babies born in Middlemore Hospital are of Pacific descent. 

Our population is young and fast-growing with a median age of 22 years. 

The Pacific migration story that has historically underpinned Pacific communities in NZ, while continuing to be a very important part of the Pacific community context, it no longer provides an all-encompassing frame of reference as so many of our people are now born here in NZ.

 

We will set the scene initially about the Pacific Vision work we have embarked on nationally, and then we would like to talanoa about it with PAG members getting their feedback from the set questions we have; for example – what are the biggest issues facing our Pacific communities in Wgtn?  What do you think needs to change?
