    Grant Robertson's remaining optimistic when it comes to our economy

    Grant Robertson's remaining optimistic when it comes to our economy


    Gross Domestic Product grew by 2.8 percent in the June quarter, more than twice what the market had been expecting.

    But there are concerns the third quarter won't be as strong, because it'll take into account this Delta outbreak.

    The Deputy Prime Minister says we could still see a bounce back by the last quarter.

    He says the December quarter should be a good one.

    The Government's also now topped up the Covid-19 Fund by an extra seven-billion dollars.
