MPI gets rearranged into four agencies – MSN

The Government is setting up four new agencies to handle responsibilities currently within the Ministry for Primary Industries.

Fisheries New Zealand, Forestry New Zealand, Biosecurity New Zealand and New Zealand Food Safety will be established by April next year at a cost of $6.8 million.

MPI will continue to exist as a host agency for the new branches.

Damien O’Connor, the minister responsible for agriculture, biosecurity and food safety, has given an assurance there will be no redundancies.

“People shouldn’t be worried about losing their jobs,” he said on Wednesday.
