What is a Long-term Insights Briefing?

Long-term Insights Briefings are a new type of document that must be produced by all Chief Executives in Government departments at least every three years. They aim to prompt thinking and spark debate by providing information about trends, risks and opportunities that may matter to New Zealand over the next 10 years and beyond, plus impartial analysis on ways future decision makers could respond.
