Westpac's chief economist Dominick Stephens and Westpac industry economist Paul Clark say they expect the impact of the coronavirus outbreak could knock 0.6 percentage points off New Zealand's March quarter GDP. They are now therefore predicting just 0.1% GDP growth for that quarter. They do, however, currently expect that tourism and other export activity will start recovering through the middle of 2020 and that as the level of GDP returns to normal levels, quarterly growth rates will be higher than normal.
