Harald Finger of the International Monetary Fund has expressed support for federal government measures such as the JobKeeper wage subsidy scheme in response to the coronavirus pandemic.

The IMF Mission chief to Australia also advocates a reduction in the corporate tax rate and increasing the goods and services tax.
