A group of Economics students from ACG Parnell College had a day trip to Wellington to visit the main institutions of government. Firstly, we visited NZ Treasury and were meet by two intern analysts who explained their role and intricacy of determining and delivering fiscal policy. Next, we visited the Reserve Bank of New Zealand and gained an insight into the formulation and delivery of monetary policy. Lastly, we had a tour of Parliament House which included a comprehensive oversight of the debating chamber, press room, legislative council room and the library. A thoroughly interesting trip for all.
