New Zealand Government: COVID-19 and the Digital Economy
New Zealand’s government response to COVID-19 has been viewed as strong and policy heavy, largely and partly because of its successful control of the pandemic's spread. Additionally, this has provided the government a head start in building up the country's digital capabilities without managing a prolonged COVID-19 fallout, both from a social and economic standpoint. Agencies and policy makers have been forced to make fast technology choices to support the COVID-19 response and presently, attention is turning to a rapid economic recovery, in which digital will play a major role."COVID-19's economic implications will dramatically change technology investment planning, digital service models, and technology projects prioritisation in the New Zealand government. However, as many other governments worldwide are facing uncertainty because of prolonged operating restrictions, New Zealand is in an enviable position of having the opportunity to build a solid digital foundation and economy that can be expanded beyond COVID-19's threat," says Louise Francis, research director, IDC Australia and New Zealand.
