Bioeconomy in New Zealand
New Zealand's bioeconomy is characterised by agriculture, the food industry and fishing - a bioenergy sector is developing.
The government fosters application-oriented research with a strong focus on the country’s natural resources and modern life sciences. These technologies are widely used in the agricultural industry. Biorefineries are also growing. In terms of politics, the topics of environmental protection and sustainability are highly valued. New Zealand doesn’t have a dedicated bioeconomy strategy.
