ANZ New Zealand Economic Outlook
This week ANZ New Zealand Chief Economist, Sharon Zollner, spent some time at the Chamber to share her analysis on the state of the New Zealand economy. Those lucky enough to secure a ticket for this sold out event were treated to in depth analysis delivered in a sharp and witty way. Sharon covered trends from GDP per capita, hiring and investing through to credit growth, household debt, employment growth and wage inflation. Agriculture, construction and forestry industries were discussed and Sharon even touched on the Light Traffic Index, which is surprisingly correlated with GDP.
After an engaging Q & A session, the informal discussions continued over beer, wine and canapes. We had so much positive feedback on the evening and Sharon's presentation, we asked her if we could share it with the rest of our community.
