From , 5:02 am on 15 July 2019

The New Zealand government is inviting people and agencies from around the Pacific region to have their say on how the aid programme can improve.

The Foreign Affairs, Defence and Trade Committee has opened an inquiry into Pacific aid which will look at the effectiveness of different aid models like the Pacific Reset and PACER Plus and also see how other nations deliver aid sucessfully.

Jenny Meyer asked the MP for Tamaki and the committee's chairman, Simon O'Connor, who is eligible to submit to the inquiry team.
