    The Government wants five percent of public sector contracts to go to Maori businesses

    The Government wants five percent of public sector contracts to go to Maori businesses


    Maori Development Minister Willie Jackson says the Government spends 42-billion dollars a year on procurement of goods and services.

    He says the new five percent target will encourage agencies to cast the net wider when awarding contracts - and help speed up economic recovery for Maori businesses.

    The target is considered aspirational - partly due to a lack of precise data about the scale of Maori business activity.
