The prediction for the NZ economy for 2014.
A leading global bank says that New Zealand will be the “rock star” economy of 2014.
Paul Bloxham, HSBC chief economist for Australia and New Zealand said New Zealand’s growth is set to outpace most of its developed markets peers.
Mr Bloxham said yesterday “We think New Zealand will be the rock star <strong>economy of 2014.</strong>”
“Growth is going to pick up pretty solidly this year.” He also said there were three key factors contributing to further expansion.
The first was construction spending with the Canterbury rebuild.
He mentioned “There’s an enormous amount of construction that’s going into building that region of the economy.”
Mr Bloxham said the second driver was the country’s housing boom, encouraged by the low interest rates and a wave of net immigration during the past year.
The final factor was growing dairy prices, driven by strong demand from China. Mr Bloxham said, dairy prices, which were more than 50% higher than a year ago, were supporting rural incomes.
HSBC forecasts that the Kiwi economy would grow 3.4% in 2014, the fastest speed since 2007 and well above the trend growth of 2.5%.
It was expected to post a growth of 3% for 2013.
