The government will unveil the 2020 Budget at 2pm today.

This year’s Budget will be focussed on the response to Covid-19.

It’s titled ‘Rebuilding Together’ and Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern signalled that it will have a strong emphasis on creating jobs.

Finance Minister Grant Robertson has said the only plans that survived from the scrapped Budget were those addressing cost pressures in the public sector, the $4 billion for health already announced is a clear example of one of those pressures. Welfare will be another.
