From security pacts to dancing kiwifruit - was the PM's overseas trip a success?

View descriptionShare

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern this month left New Zealand for the first time in two years, for a business-focused trip to Singapore and Japan.

This trip was meant to be an announcement to the world that Aotearoa is open and ready for business. But between the high-level talks and the dancing kiwifruit, what did the Prime Minister actually achieve?  
Today, Newstalk ZB chief political reporter Jason Walls joins Damien to discuss what it was like on the Prime Minister’s trip to Singapore and Japan.
