Pacific Aotearoa - The Lalanga Fou Languages and High Tech Report

The Lalanga Fou Languages and High Tech Fono was held over two days (26-27 November 2019), and brought together key stakeholders in the areas of both technology and language. In attendance were Pacific and non-Pacific scientists, technology and innovation business leaders and academics, language experts, community groups, government officials, and broader stakeholders.

The Lalanga Fou Languages and High Tech Fono confirmed that Pacific communities hold the keys to collectively build and design a future that allows them to thrive and prosper in Aotearoa. 

The Ministry for Pacific Peoples would like to acknowledge the support and contribution of its partner agencies; The Ministry of Social Development, the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment, The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade and the Science for Technological Innovation National Science Challenge.

Pacific Aotearoa - The Lalanga Fou Report

Pacific Aotearoa is about empowering Pacific communities to be at the decision-making table, driving and leading innovative solutions.

The Pacific Aoteroa Lalanga Fou  report lays a good strong foundation that we can build upon for generations to come. It is the start of a conversation to better understand Pacific people’s contribution to NZ’s economy, and how we define success, prosperity and well-being.

It will give confidence to our young people that Pacific people do punch well above their weight despite the burdens of inequalities that exist. It will also help eliminate the negative stereotypical attitudes towards Pacific peoples from other quarters.
