Incoming Prime Minister, Jacinda Adern, has released the details of Labour's coalition agreements with New Zealand First and the Green Party. Economic development is the priority.
As part of its deal with NZ First, it has agreed to a $1 billion dollar a year regional development fund, including investment in regional rail.

Former Act MP Deborah Coddington tells The Panel there is pragmatism in a lot of the plans of the new Government.
