The Ministry for Ethnic Communities is the government’s chief advisor on ethnic communities, ethnic diversity and the inclusion of ethnic communities in wider society.
Ethnic communities make a huge contribution to Aotearoa New Zealand's social fabric and economy. They represent 20 per cent of our population; almost a million people and growing. We are an increasingly diverse nation and this diversity is a source of strength.
