From Morning Report, 7:16 am on 19 April 2021

After months of discussions, the trans-Tasman bubble is officially open.

The Prime Ministers of New Zealand and Australia are describing it as a world-leading arrangement that promotes travel between the two countries, without letting Covid-19 into the community.

Jacinda Ardern and Scott Morrison say the Pacific Islands are next on the list.

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern told Corin Dann today is a "very significant day" for New Zealanders.
