The recent DigitalNation.nz report provides a fantastic source of insight into the New Zealand Digital and Technology sector, it’s contribution to the economy, impact on other sectors and contribution on a regional basis.
In 2015 the Digital and Technology sector accounted for 8% of GDP and 7% of exports. The overall contribution to GDP was greater than that of the dairy sector due to factors like higher paid jobs – double that of the NZ median salary.
The DigitalNation report supports NZRise’s view the Digital and Technology sector is making a difference and will continue to be transformative for New Zealand – lifting productivity across all sectors and industries, providing regional diversification in jobs, and continuing to create higher paid jobs. The opportunity for our economy is exciting.
