New Zealand's Treasury is working to include a Pacific perspective on well-being and living standards in the country, in a move to be more inclusive.
The government's lead economic and financial advisor is developing what it calls a 'Living Standards Framework'.
It has a major focus on intergenerational well-being and can be used to weigh up different policy options.
It has just published a paper focussing on the Pacific perspective, as part of a series exploring the concept of well-being in different cultures.
Treasury's principal Pacific advisor Su'a Kevin Thomsen told Amelia Langford it has been travelling the country to hear from the Pacific community.
