Chapter RBNZ Wheeler said the global outlook remains controversial, the eurozone remains in recession and shows signs of slowing growth in China and Australia, but a more recent positive economic data from the U.S. and Japan. In the global debt markets have become more cautious because of the expected release of the U.S. Federal Reserve and the policy of "quantitative easing."
In addition, managing the RBNZ said that economic growth in New Zealand rose, and although it varies, becomes more widespread across industries. Consumption is growing and reconstruction Kantenberi will be supported by a broad increase in activity in the construction industry, particularly in Auckland. This will support the overall activity and ultimately will reduce housing shortages.
Despite the fact that since May 2013 the foreign trade-weighted New Zealand dollar has declined, it remains high and will continue to be an obstacle for the tradable sectors, reducing export revenues and increasing demand for imports. Fiscal consolidation will reduce aggregate demand in the planned term.
Meanwhile, Managing RBNZ said that although the cessation of monetary stimulus is likely to be necessary in the future, we expect that the interest rate will remain unchanged until the end of the year.
