The outgoing chair of the Royal Commission into Historical Abuse in State Care and in the Care of Faith-Based Institutions says preliminary work as exposed how much the problem of historic abuse was a Māori problem.

Sir Anand Satyanand says he's stepping down because at 75 he doesn't have the time the role requires, but the build up to public hearings is now completed.

He says the commission's activities will fit well with other inquiries now going on with the criminal justice system and child protection services.

"One of the big themes in the middle is the partnership, the actual partnership that must occur strongly with the Māori dimension in the country and that’s what we have been working on, engaging with Māori a direct fashion, and we have had good pick-up," Sir Anand says.

He will still be available to help from the sidelines.
