In the three months to December gross domestic product contracted by 0.5 per cent, taking the annual rate of economic growth to just 0.3 per cent. This represented a substantial decline in annual growth from 1.9 per cent just one quarter prior.

“Australia can reduce the impact, cushion the impact of the global economic tide but we cannot stop it altogether,” he said.
