With the growing successes of Pacific people in New Zealand and around the world in varying pursuits, the Ministry introduced #PACIFICSTARS and #SUCCESSFULPACIFICPEOPLES as an avenue to;
- promote Pacific achievements by sharing their success stories on mainstream
- utilise Pacific success stories to inspire our Pacific people
- create a sense of pride of being pacific with our communities
The Ministry has also promoted the Pacific Stars concept to encourage participation from our Pacific communities with the work that we lead and support.
