“The Budget will be a "Covid" Budget, in the sense of dealing with the ongoing effects of the pandemic. But as well as being a Covid Budget, Budget 2021 will also be a recovery and wellbeing budget,” New Zealand's Deputy Prime Minister and Finance Minister Grant Robertson said in his second-major pre-Budget speech early Monday.
“Economic recovery so far gives the government more options.”
“There is scope to keep a lid on NZ higher debt levels, lower the debt once recovery is secure.”
“Not indicating any austerity measures to lower debt at this stage.”
Despite the encouraging comments from Robertson, NZD/USD retreats towards 0.7250, having faced rejection once again just shy of the 0.73 mark.
The spot was last seen trading at 0.7273, almost unchanged on the day.
