Boost for NZ data transparency

The New Zealand Government has officially transferred its open data programme to Statistics New Zealand (Stats NZ), on the grounds that it will boost the government’s commitment to providing better and more freely available information.

The programme was previously headed by Land Information New Zealand (LINZ) and is designed to help agencies make more information openly available.

The objective of transferring the programme to Stats NZ is to help improve decision-making across agencies and support the Government’s commitment to invest in better and more efficient public services, according to a government press release.
