It was a busy week for news but two key events seemed to dominate headlines; the signing of the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) and Waitangi Day.
RNZ's Patrick O'Meara provided an overview of key Trans Pacific Partnership information, including the deal included, what was at stake and what the next steps were.
