    There's light at the end of the Covid-19 tunnel ... but it could be a bumpy ride

    There's light at the end of the Covid-19 tunnel ... but it could be a bumpy ride


    Infometrics senior economist Brad Olsen says economic growth will be patchy throughout the year.

    He says there are concerns it could also be impacted by a slower-than-intended vaccine rollout.

    Olsen says if things go to plan, New Zealand could be opening up to more of the world next year.

    He says economic recovery could go back into the slow lane if any Covid-related issues aren't resolved.
