Government winds up Digital Council advisory group

Minister of digital economy and communications Dr David Clark said the Digital Council advisory group will wind up this month after sitting for two years.

Assembled in 2019, the Digital Council's work programme was "focused on helping shape the Mahi Tahi (inclusion) and Mahi Tika (trust) pillars of the recently launched Digital Strategy Aotearoa and its action plan," Clark said.

Clark added that since the work programme had been delivered, it felt like an appropriate time to disestablish the council. 

He thanked the council members profusely for their dedicated time and effort.

Between June 2020 and August 2021, the Digital Council produced four reports.

CodeHQ director Mitchell Pham chaired the Digital Council which also had designer and animator Nikora Ngaropo, law professor Colin Gavaghan, and consultant Roger Dennis on its team.

Accountant and web developer Kendall Flutey, strategist Julia Arnott-Neenee, chief executive of Precision Driven Health Kevin Ross were also on the council, along with professor of design and public good Anna Brown, who acted as a special adviser.
