WELLINGTON (Reuters) - The Reserve Bank of New Zealand (RBNZ) said on Thursday the United States needs to think very seriously about its trade leadership in the Asia Pacific region.

RBNZ Governor Graeme Wheeler also told legislators that markets were analyzing the impact on trade stemming from Donald Trump's stunning win in the U.S. presidential elections.

The comments followed the central bank's widely expected decision to cut rates by 25 basis points to a record low of 1.75 percent.
