Budgetary Governance in Practice: New Zealand

Economic growth in New Zealand should increase from 2.8% in the June quarter 2018 to a peak of 3.6% in the December 2019 quarter, as private consumption growth remains solid, increased government spending bolsters the economy, and both residential and business investment pick up. Growth is expected to slow to 2.5% by June 2022 as net migration inflows ease, and interest rates rise. Inflation is projected to remain relatively subdued at 1.4% in 2019.
