New Public Service hub confirmed for the Pacific

From , 5:02 am on 4 February 2020

It's hoped public services across the Pacific will be improved with the launch of a centralised hub. 

The new Public Service Fale - hosted in Aotearoa New Zealand - will be funded through the country's aid programme.

Foreign minister Winston Peters says strengthening public services is a "core focus" of New Zealand's 'Pacific Reset', and is among efforts to improve democratic governance in the region.
