NZIER sees mixed growth outlook - Quarterly Predictions, December 2018

28 November 2018

Slowing population growth is driving a moderation in economic growth, but several positive factors continue to support demand, as detailed in the latest NZIER Quarterly Predictions. “We have reduced our growth outlook, and now expect annual GDP growth to average around 2.8 percent over the next five years.”

“While that represents a respectable outcome for the New Zealand economy, there are downside risks to the outlook”, said Principal Economist Christina Leung.

An independent take on the New Zealand economic outlook is available exclusively to NZIER’s members in the latest Quarterly Predictions.
