New Zealand Maritime Forum

Learn about the New Zealand Maritime Forum (NZMF).

Purposes of the NZMF

NZMF is a membership organisation established for the purposes of:

  • promoting the wider maritime sector
  • developing and maintaining a constructive relationship between the maritime sector, Maritime New Zealand (MNZ) and other relevant government agencies
  • providing a collective ‘voice’ for the wider maritime sector.

Both MNZ and the wider maritime sector as represented by the NZMF believe that the establishment of a ‘standing’ mechanism through which both parties can communicate in a constructive way, work towards the development of an increasingly efficient and effective maritime regulatory regime, and increase general awareness of the national contribution made by the sector, is advantageous to both parties.
