  2. Create more physical and online opportunities for the public to understand the process.
  3. Provide relevant information about the value of the Inter-Parliamentary Relations programme, particularly the development work in the Pacific and New Zealand’s role as a international citizen.
  4. Keep the public in the loop from the beginning to the end of the process.
  5. Tell the story of Parliament, offer an alternative to Question Time which currently gets the most public attention.
