New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has placed the ball firmly in Australia’s court for the creation of a trans-Tasman bubble.
Regular travel between the two countries has been suspended during the Covid-19 pandemic, and there is no shortage of people eager to see it return.
Ardern, who won’t risk the return of transmission of the disease in the country, says a reopening of borders will come down to Australian leaders.
She says that ultimately it’s up to Australia to decide whether or not they’ll go for a whole of country approach, or a state-by-state approach.
