Defence Policy Review: Defence Policy and Strategy Statement 2023
The Defence Policy and Strategy Statement 2023 will guide Defence’s planning, operations, engagements and investment to ensure that Defence is fit-for-purpose in an increasingly challenging and complex world.
New Zealand’s updated defence approach emphasises a deliberate, proactive and strategy-led approach to the promotion and protection of New Zealand’s defence and wider security interests.
This means a more proactive and purposeful approach which emphasises deliberate Defence actions to shape our strategic environment and prevent threats to New Zealand’s interests, with a particular emphasis on activities in and for the Pacific.
