The Hon Grant Robertson, Finance Minister, delivered the IPANZ Annual Address at the Beehive last Thursday. He said he wanted to have "a Budget process and a public sector that are structured around measuring and improving wellbeing outcomes."

Politicians would also back the public service to be innovative - and to work with each other and the community.
