Until recently, Australia’s economic overview in the context of the world pandemic has been pretty strong.

The meeting minutes we are to receive on Tuesday refers to the last interest rate decision – the interest rate was kept at 0.25%. However, given the recent developments, we may receive some additional information on how Australian authorities are planning to steer the country’s economy and the AUD through the second phase of the virus hit.
