Moore, who served briefly as Prime Minister in 1990 and later led the World Trade Organisation, died earlier this month aged 71.
Speakers at Mike Moore's funeral in Auckland today include Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, Western Australia governor Kim Beazley and former Labour Minister Bill Jeffries.
Moore's nephew Nick will also speak.
A close friend of Moore, Clayton Cosgrove, said it would be a hard day for his widow Yvonne.
"As one would expect of her, been a power of strength," he said.
"It's been very rough and devastating on her, but she is an exceptionally strong woman who stood by every facet of his life whether it was on a street corner meeting, a campaign, taking the sort of slings and arrows of politics right to the point where she stood by his bedside as he passed."
Flags at all public and government buildings will fly at half mast today.
