Between 2002 and 2018 the Treasury periodically releasesd briefing material provided to the Minister of Finance relevant to the new Policy Targets Agreement (PTA).

Once a PTA has been agreed between the Minister of Finance and the Governor of the Reserve Bank of New Zealand (Reserve Bank) and is in the public domain, the Treasury takes the view that there is likely to be significant interest in making public its advice leading up to the new PTA.
