Economic activity has been comparatively resilient and is set to accelerate over the next two years. Although a still relatively high NZ dollar and a weaker global economy will undermine exports for a time, and policy support will eventually be withdrawn, post-earthquake reconstruction will provide ongoing stimulus. High commodity prices and a recovering labour market are supporting incomes, although private spending will be restrained by necessary deleveraging.
