New Zealand Ministry of Foreign Affairs & Trade

Relationships are at the heart of our work at MFAT — we’re the diplomats, negotiators, analysts and advisors working to make New Zealanders safer and more prosperous.

Focus areas

Our current areas of organisational focus for improvement in the Ministry include:

  • ensuring the Government’s offshore network is fit for purpose
  • attracting, engaging and developing the right skilled people to deliver results
  • implementing a new strategic framework with clearer direction and more effective prioritisation
  • lifting our collaboration to deliver results for and with public and private sector partners

We employ around 1,400 staff. Approximately 760 are based offshore, including 530 locally engaged staff. We also contract out certain activities to external suppliers.
