    The Finance Minister says it'll be hard to find first-quarter growth in New Zealand's economy ... but we won't be alone

    The Finance Minister says it'll be hard to find first-quarter growth in New Zealand's economy ... but we won't be alone


    A key factor is the coronavirus outbreak - with Covid-19 now in 44 countries.

    The number of new infections outside China, is now bigger than those within.

    Grant Robertson says revisions in financial market reports have brought us back to where growth was at the end of 2019.

    He says those revisions can be expected in a situation like this.

    Robertson says New Zealand's economy is robust and should bounce back from any impacts of the virus.
