NZIER's QSBO shows pre-election business confidence jitters, Quarterly Survey of Business Opinion - October 2017

03 October 2017

The latest NZIER Quarterly Survey of Business Opinion shows business confidence fell in the September quarter, with only a net 7 percent of businesses expecting an improvement in general economic conditions.

A decline in business confidence is not unusual heading into a General Election, as businesses and households hold off committing to major spending plans given the uncertainty over the formation of the new Government.

The full results from the QSBO survey are available to NZIER members.
