Australian PM calls for economic overhaul to fuel post-coronavirus recovery


Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison on Tuesday called for an ideological truce between employers and workers to revive the country’s A$2 trillion ($1.3 trillion) economy, which has been badly damaged by the coronavirus pandemic.

Morrison said that with the virus now under control and the government’s A$250 billion ($164.5 billion) stimulus spending package winding down, the economy needed to stand on its own feet.

“At some point you’ve got to get your economy out of intensive care,” Morrison said in a speech in Canberra.
