about new zealand - Our People

The population of New Zealand is just over 4.2 million people, with around 80% living in cities. New Zealand boasts a rich culture of indigenous Maori. This is entwined with the more recent migratory groups from the United Kingdom, other European countries, as well as a range of Pacific Island peoples and more recently significant Asian migration.

Known as Kiwis, (after our iconic, flightless and endangered native bird), we are known to be stereotypically mad about sport, passionate about the arts and some of the most welcoming and hospitable people in the world. This makes New Zealand a business tourism centre, with friendly prefessional conference organisers ready and willing to help you to plan your next New Zealand event.

Hūtia te rito o te harakeke. Kei hea te kōmako e kō?
Kī mai nei ki ahau. He aha te mea nui ki tēnei ao?
Māku e kī atu. He tangata, he tangata, he tangata.


If you were to pluck out the centre of the flax bush, where would the bellbird sing?
If you were to ask me "What is the most important thing in the world?"
I would reply, "That it is people, people, people."
Traditional Maori proverb
