Treasurer Josh Frydenberg will use his economic statement on 12 May to stress that there must be a limit to the federal government’s stimulus and assistance schemes, and they must eventually be wound back. Treasury has estimated that the government’s three-stage strategy to re-open the economy by July will boost GDP by $9.4bn a month and generate 850,000 jobs. However, Frydenberg will emphasise that this is dependent on Australians continuing to observe social distancing and hygiene measures.
