Whatungarongaro te tangata toitū te whenua: While people come and go, the land endures

LINZ takes its Māori name Toitū te Whenua from the proverb Whatungarongaro te tangata toitū te whenua: “While people come and go, the land endures”. Land is central to New Zealand’s identity and to the country’s economic growth, and it will exist long after we have gone.

Chief Executive’s Statement of Responsibility In signing this statement, I acknowledge that I am responsible for the information on strategic intentions for Land Information New Zealand. This information has been prepared in accordance with sections 38 and 40 of the Public Finance Act 1989.
