The New Zealand Treasury is the government’s lead advisor on economic, financial and regulatory policy. The Treasury provides the government with advice that integrates economic and financial perspectives including interests in institutions, macroeconomic performance and structural policy issues. It operates in partnership with other agencies that have more specific responsibilities, as well as fellow central agencies, to ensure that the public service overall is well placed to fulfil the government’s priorities.

   
The Treasury also has three core roles: 
   

  • economic role: concentrates on issues with regulatory or policy implications that may have a significant and therefore pervasive impact on the performance of the economy as a whole
  • financial role: concentrates on issues with a significant fiscal focus (expensive policies and long-term trends), and financial management and standards (including financial probity issues)
  • central agency role: places more emphasis on helping the government develop its overall strategy and manage significant issues that emerge.
