1) Moving to the innovation economy- technological advances, research development, and education could serve as opportunities or threats for Maori wellbeing, careers, and business.

2) Redistribution of world economic power- The global powerbase is shifting from Europe and America to Asia. This will impact Maori through investment and employment opportunities within the new markets that have great economic growth.
3) Climate change and resource pressures- These will serve as a challenge for Māori given their economic concentration of businesses in the agriculture and fishing sectors. Adapting to climate change will require the uptake of new technologies to mitigate and withstand potential climate-related shocks.
