New Zealand releases roadmap for future defence, national security


Wellington (Best Hindu News): The New Zealand government has released its strategy for defense development and national security for the first time in a world facing complex and disruptive security challenges. New Zealand Prime Minister Chris Hipkins urged the defense force to keep a clear eye on risks and deploy the right capabilities to be effective as he released a defense policy review and New Zealand’s first National Security Strategy on Friday.

He said the Defense Policy Strategy Statement sets out New Zealand’s defense goals and how to achieve them. The National Security Strategy, on the other hand, is the government’s direction to the wider national security community on how to operate in a changed environment.

At the same time, Defense Minister Andrew Little said that areas of focus for national security efforts included investment in a combat-capable defense force and a comprehensive national security system. It also includes tackling emerging issues such as disinformation and making more concerted efforts in areas where threats are growing, such as economic security.
