NZ Government took decisive action to protect jobs, incomes and businesses in the face of COVID-19. Below is more detail about our Government’s immediate Economic Response Package, launched in March.
New Zealand’s government has announced a spending package equivalent to 4% of GDP in an attempt to fight the effects of Covid-19 on the economy, in what ministers called the most significant peace-time economic plan in the country’s modern history.
It includes covering wages for people who are required to self-isolate but cannot work from home, or those caring for relatives who are sick with the virus, even if they are not sick or do not test positive for Covid-19.
We have put together the Covid-19 – Financial Assistance Package Factsheet that you can download.
