Working through New Zealand’s diplomatic network abroad, G2G Know-How partners with other governments around the world to identify their specific needs. We then engage with New Zealand's extensive state-sector network to deliver best in class expertise and solutions to international government partners around the world.

Acting as a one-stop shop, we bring together teams of experts from the New Zealand public and private sectors to work with other governments on the design, implementation and delivery of specific programmes of work, to help other countries improve their state-sector performance. We provide world-leading expertise from New Zealand in areas like Agriculture, Food Safety, Education, and Digital Government.

We focus on growing your national capacity and capability by forming joint delivery teams. Bespoke solutions are then developed together, drawing on world-leading expertise across New Zealand’s state sector. 

Our approach is based on forming multidisciplinary teams with the collective experience and capability to manage complex change and lift performance. We play a critical role in bringing together and integrating relevant expertise from various New Zealand Government agencies and the private sector. During implementation, we provide oversight to ensure that all parties communicate effectively and that sound governance is in place. This helps ensure first-class, sustainable results that both governments can be proud of for years to come.

We ensure that our services are based on real-world experience, from design to implementation, and provide deep and honest insights. We can also help with the local adaptation and adoption of proven New Zealand programmes, where appropriate. Implementation is key and is usually driven through joint New Zealand and partner government teams on the ground.
