Digital Strategy 2.0

posted Feb 7, 2011, 3:00 PM by Jess Maher

Digital technologies have transformed our lives in recent years. Digital literacy has grown exponentially and digital devices have proliferated - personal computers, mobile phones, laptops and mobile wireless devices.  The new digital environment is changing the way New Zealanders live, work and play. It is transforming the way we do business, stimulating creativity and innovation across our economy and society. It presents immense economic, environmental and social opportunities for us all - but there are new challenges ahead.

The Digital Strategy 2.0 is a response to the changes and challenges of a rapidly evolving digital world. Its purpose is to:

  • provide a national vision, supported by outcomes and goals for New Zealand’s digital development;
  • highlight opportunities and challenges in the digital world;
  • provide a call to action for all stakeholders to rise to the challenges and opportunities presented by the digital world;
  • clearly articulate the government’s role in digital development; and
  • outline the key actions through which government will fulfil its role in supporting digital development.
