New Zealand central bank governor Graeme Wheeler will make an announcement “fairly soon” on his future in the role, Finance Minister Steven Joyce said.

“I don’t really want to get into where he’s at in terms of seeking a renewal or not,” Joyce said in an interview late Monday in Wellington. “He’s indicated a timeframe, which is fairly soon, in terms of when he’s going to say something. I’ll leave him to do that.”
