Māori economy on the rise

  • Auckland

Senior Associate at Chapman Tripp law firm and post settlement adviser Te Aopare Dewes gives an analysis on the growing Māori economy.

The Māori economy is estimated at $50 billion and it's growing. Compared to the country's GDP, which was at $265 billion at March this year, that makes the Māori economy 19% of the whole country's wealth - the bulk of it from post Treaty settlement investments.
