Politics and law

New Zealand is a parliamentary monarchy. Head of state with ceremonial and representative duties is the British monarch, Queen Elizabeth II since 1952. She is represented by a governor-general, since 2016 Petsy Reddy (* 1955). The Prime Minister, Jacinda Ardern since 2017, has political decision-making power (* 1980). There is a separation of powers in New Zealand. The Executive Council, as the executive power, consists of the Prime Minister and all ministers. The chairman is the governor general. Laws are passed by the parliament (legislature). The parliament is elected for a three-year term and consists of the governor general and the house of representatives. At the age of 18 you are entitled to vote.

The social democratic government under Jacinda Ardern fights against child poverty and for social justice and nature conservation. The minimum wage is 16.50 NZ dollars, just under 10 euros.

There is freedom of the press in New Zealand. Print media appear mostly in English. Māori radio stations have existed since 1983, and Māori TV since 2004. In 2019, all New Zealand media voluntarily agreed to report the victim attack on two mosques in Christchurch in such a way that racist and terrorist ideas about the attacker were not spread.

The national holiday is February 6th. It is reminiscent of the Waitangi Treaty between the British and Māori, with which the British history of New Zealand began.

Similar to Germany, New Zealand has preschools and schools. School attendance is compulsory from 6-16 years of age. The National Certificate of Educational Achievement corresponds to the German Abitur. Further educational institutions are technical colleges, 3 Māori colleges and 8 universities.


With a gross national income of US $ 41,000 per resident (2018), New Zealand is one of the high-income countries. The service sector generated around three quarters of the gross domestic product in 2017. Important branches of the economy are agriculture, tourism and the technology sector. The food industry, mechanical engineering, wood processing, electrical engineering and electronics are also efficient. Over 30% of all factories are concentrated in the North Island around Auckland and Wellington.

The agricultural focus is on livestock and dairy farming. Mainly wheat, oats, barley, maize and potatoes are grown. Viticulture is becoming increasingly important. Kiwi fruits are mainly grown in the east of the North Island. On the South Island, the keeping of deer and roe deer in enclosures and in the open air has spread. In 1978, a 200-nautical-mile economic zone was established around New Zealand, which is one of the largest fishing areas in the world.

The domestic market is small, and most of the production is for export. The main export countries are China, Australia and the USA. 70% of the export goods come from agriculture and forestry, especially milk and milk concentrates. Mainly motor vehicles and machines are imported.

The most important mineral resources are crude oil, natural gas, coal and huge deposits of iron-bearing sands.

The state completely renounces nuclear energy and uses almost 90% renewable energy sources such as hydropower, geothermal energy and wind energy.

New Zealand is an attractive destination for travelers and adventurers. Almost 4 million tourists came to the country in 2019. Check plus-size-tips to see New Zealand Travel Package.
