Maori Party Co-Leader Tariana Turia is congratulating a consortium of Taitokerau iwi for forming a unique high speed broadband infrastructure network for Northland.
The formation of Taitokerau Networks has been led by Te Runanga o Whaingaroa, Te Runanga o Ngati Whatua and Te Runanga o Te Rarawa.
The network will operate from Auckland to Whangarei with construction of the infrastructure due to be completed in five months.
“I congratulate the consortium on its futuristic focus on IT development and job creation. I am told that already jobs have been created to develop the network.
“I remember back in December 2009 when Tai Tokerau iwi CEOs briefed the Maori Party on the potential of developing a Maori owned high speech broadband network throughout the North.
“We were so inspired by the momentum they had generated and fully endorsed their proposal as one which has every likelihood of achieving iwi employment, opportunity, prosperity and ultimately being able to contribute to whanau ora.”
“This is a very exciting iwi initiative that will ultimately lead to educational and employment opportunities across the Northland region and will help to stimulate the local economy,” says Mrs Turia.
“We know iwi are the economic powerhouses of the future and it is bold and innovative consortiums like this that will lead the way.”
