The Auckland Māori economy : size, issues and opportunities
August 6, 2015
The Auckland Māori economy accounts for 4%-5% of the Auckland economy, and 26%-27% of the national Māori economy. The Auckland Māori economy is smaller than might be expected, given that the Māori population accounts for 10% of Aucklanders. Māori GDP per capita is 55%-65% lower than the regional average. Auckland Māori entities and businesses had assets of around $23 billion in 2013. This accounts for 3% of Auckland's estimated total business asset base and almost 55% of the national Māori asset base of $43 billion.
