New Zealand ranks 19th on the finance component. New Zealand receives a good score on its international investment agreements, as they take into account the public policy goals of developing countries and incorporate a sustainable development approach. It lags, however, on the international frameworks regulating investments. New Zealand could step up its efforts for sustainable development for all by putting in place a national action plan on business and human rights, as set out in the OECD guidelines on multinational companies, and by becoming a donor to the Extractives Global Programmatic Support (EGPS) Multi-Donor Trust Fund. On financial transparency, New Zealand’s performance is average, with room for improvement on public company ownership and country-by-country reporting.
