New Zealand Finance Minister Grant Robertson spoke on Radion NZ earlier:

  • Says a drop in the value of the Kiwi dollar is "natural" after a change in government
  • He wasn't especially concerned about the New Zealand dollar dropping below US70c
  • "We have policies that are about stimulating good solid job growth, those are the kinds of things that people want to see in the economy," he said."Any volatility we've seen is a reaction to a change of government that would happen at any time anywhere in the world and I'm sure the markets will see they can be confident in our government"
