Comments from the New Zealand finance minister:
- New Zealand economic fundamentals are good
- RBNZ's 2014 rate increases curbed growth this year
- Fed hike is good news for NZ economy
- NZD still looks overvalued
- Tourism picked up strongly, boosting GDP
That's some weak jawboning and he took a little swipe at the RBNZ there as well.
The kiwi climbed about 25 pips on the GDP numbers but has given it all back, largely due to broader USD strength.
