Issue date: 
Monday, 17 August 2020

The Minister of Finance has today announced that the Pre-Election Economic and Fiscal Update (PREFU) 2020 release is now scheduled for 16 September 2020. This is because the Prime Minister has announced that the general election will now take place on 17 October 2020.  Details of the Treasury advisory can be found here.


Further to the Minister’s announcement on the PREFU release date, New Zealand Debt Management will publish the updated forecast core Crown borrowing programme on 16 September 2020, to coincide with the PREFU release.


There are no changes to the previously announced New Zealand Government Bond Tender Schedule – August 2020.
