簽署該條約的最初原因是，英國王室願意在接管其他任何強國之前殖民新西蘭。該條約意義重大，因為它有助於確保Pakeha和毛利人的權利在接受他們的權利、承認他們的所有權和保護生活方式方面得到保護(James, 2015)。政府被要求滿足每一個和每一個需要，並歸還一切給公眾，甚至分期付款，同時恢復他們對政府當局的信心。如前所述，該條約在許多方面對新西蘭人產生了重大影響，不論是他們的生活方式還是做生意的方式。當定居者抵達新西蘭時，他們最終非法從毛利人手中奪取了大部分土地，但條約規定毛利人有權擁有他們的土地。這導致土地和現金方面的大規模定居點(Scerra, 2012)。
The original reason for signing the Treaty was the willingness of British Crown for colonizing New Zealand prior to the takeover of any other powerful nations. The Treaty is significant as it helps in ensuring that the rights of Pakeha and Maori are protected with respect to the acceptance of their right, recognition of their ownership and protection of way of life (James, 2015). The government is required for meeting each and every need, and returning everything to the public, even in instalment, while restoring their faith in the authorities of government. As mentioned previously, the treaty has a significant impact on New Zealanders in a number of ways, whether their lifestyle or the way business is conducted. When there is arrival of settlers in New Zealand, they end up taking majority of the lands from Maori illegally, but the treaty provides right to Maori for owning their land. This leads towards large settlements with respect to land and cash (Scerra, 2012).
A number of tribes have now started to use this for doing business. Hence, these have turned out to be significant employers in the nation like Wakatu Corporation and a number of others. Overall, a crucial role is played by the treaty within the businesses of New Zealand as it provides the Maori population similar rights as that of the Pakeha population with respect to do business. The treaty provides rights to the Maori population for fishing across their water regions, and now businesses like international export and fisheries can be done for bringing money in the economy of New Zealand (James, 2015). As provided by the Parliamentary Counsel Office, the treaty confirms and guarantees full, undisturbed and exclusive possession of fisheries from the individual Maori, tribes and chiefs, with the willingness of retaining them (Parliamentary Counsel Office, 2014). Also, the treaty provides recognition about culture for the business, while treating the indigenous group with fairness regarding opportunities of employment.
