MPI's forestry unit launched

Friday 11 May 2018

In New Zealand, the Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI) has established three new business units — Biosecurity New Zealand, Fisheries New Zealand and New Zealand Food Safety — with a Forestry business unit launching today, on 11 May. These units will provide increased focus on some of MPI's core responsibilities and align structure to ministerial portfolios.

Martyn Dunne, director-general of MPI, said, "The business units are intended to lift the visibility of the valuable work we do in biosecurity, fisheries, forestry and food safety and increase transparency for our stakeholders and the public.

"Our new structure will enable us to deliver on MPI's ambitious agenda for the primary sector and New Zealand. Remaining one ministry allows us to continue strengthening the capabilities and expertise we have built since our formation."
