Economic growth is projected to slow to 1.9% in 2016 before recovering slightly in 2017. Activity is being held back by a sharp fall in global dairy prices, softer external demand, a diminished boost from the Canterbury rebuild and a predicted drop in agricultural output due to drought as a result of El Niño. A normalisation of weather conditions, along with additional monetary stimulus and faster global growth should provide greater support to exports and business investment in 2017.
