Two Cents’ Worth: Covid19, business and trade

With eight confirmed cases of the coronavirus Covid-19 in New Zealand, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern warning that more border restrictions are on the way and a week of watching the markets plummet, the Two Cents' Worth team decided to speak to an expert.

Fiona Acheson is New Zealand Trade and Enterprise's Regional Director for Greater China and until recently she was based in Shanghai.

Acheson shares concerns about a possible Covid-19 double whammy in China, describes how NZTE is keeping the boat afloat amid the border shut downs and predicts how New Zealand will come out of this pandemic.
