Wyatt points to ongoing public sector shake-up

A further reshuffling of state government departments appears likely after Treasurer Ben Wyatt released the government's service priority review today.

Increased online service delivery, changes to governance of trading enterprises and reforms to public sector employment relations will also be on the agenda, according to the report, which was was commissioned in May and led by former New Zealand bureaucrat Iain Rennie.

Speaking to journalists after a Committee for Economic Development of Australia lunch, Mr Wyatt said the government would have some way to go before it finalised reform of the public sector.

My understanding is that all matters such as government, health, politics, environment and the economy are more advanced in New Zealand than Australia. Perhaps less inter-political party bickering.
