BNZ Confidence Survey December 2016

Tuesday December 6th 2016

Our final BNZ Confidence Survey for 2016 has produced responses showing the economy is maintaining strong momentum heading into 2017. Tourism, construction, engineering, forestry, ICT and retail are all strong. Farming is getting better with recent dairy price rises though production is down. Only two respondents in horticulture expressed any concern about the level of the NZD. Lending restrictions have slowed residential real estate.
