The Border Executive Board was established as part of New Zealand’s defence against COVID-19 and other risks. It is intended to help co-ordinate the management of New Zealand’s borders, for example by assisting the relevant departments to:
- remove gaps in border processes,
- ensure that future risks from people, goods, and craft arriving at the borders are addressed, and
- make strategic improvements to border systems.
