Employer Bulletin | 25 September
New Zealand's economy is experiencing a strong export boost, signaling a positive turnaround and increased resilience following the aftermath of Cyclone Gabrielle. Finance Minister Grant Robertson highlights the economy's strength in the face of global uncertainties. The country's current account deficit has also improved, narrowing to 7.5% of GDP in the June year, outperforming earlier forecasts. This improvement is attributed to increased exports of kiwifruit and dairy products and the return of overseas visitors, underscoring New Zealand's economic progress and its benefits from recent trade agreements.
