Overview NewZealand

New Zealand Migration

Economic overview

New Zealand has an open economy that works on free market principles.

Over the last 30 years our economy has gone from being one of the most regulated in the OECD to one of the least regulated, most free-market based economies.

Fertile soil and excellent growing conditions coupled with sophisticated farming methods. Advanced agricultural technology provide the ideal environment for pastoral, forestry and horticulture activities. Various primary commodities account for around half of all goods exports and New Zealand is one of the top five dairy exporters in the world.

Complementing primary production are sizeable manufacturing and service sectors and growing high-tech capabilities. Tourism, film production, and winemaking are also significant.

It’s an outward-looking, internationally competitive economy with exports accounting for about 30% of GDP.

We have a low-inflation environment, with monetary policy managed by the Reserve Bank, our independent central bank that is charged with maintaining price stability.

We have a long-standing flexible exchange rate. There are no exchange controls or restrictions on bringing in or repatriating funds.

Robust performance

Projecting economic growth of around 3% for 2018, the OECD comments that while export growth is expected to slow, overall growth “will continue to be driven by strong tourism demand from Asia and increases in dairy exports.”

The New Zealand economy made a solid recovery after the 2008/09 recession, which  shallow compared to other advanced economies. Annual growth has averaged 2.1% since March 2010, emphasising the economy’s resilience.

In the year ending September 2017 the economy grew 2.7%. Growth in the year through construction, booming tourism, and strong terms of trade.

These forces proved to be considerably greater than anticipated and the Government is now forecasting average growth of 2.9% for 2018, and 3.6% for 2019.
