The New Zealand Institute of Economic Research (NZIER) released its quarterly survey of business opinions showing that New Zealand business confidence rose in the first three months of 2012. 13% of firms surveyed expected general business conditions to improve in the next 6 months, a considerable improvement from their previous survey of 0% optimism. On a seasonally adjusted basis a net 24% of firms predict general business conditions to improve from 3% who previously expected deterioration. 24% also saw a rise in their own activity from 13% in the previous survey.

NZIER principal economist Shamubeel Eaqub said, “The survey shows most indicators are going sideways, suggesting a gradual and patchy economic recovery.” He added, “The pace of recovery is modest and has not accelerated in the past nine months.”

Trading activity in businesses rose to 0% from -3%. This was consistent with economic growth around a 2% annual apace. Gross domestic product expanded 1.8% in 2011.  Labour market conditions also stabilised, consistent with slow growth in jobs and wages.
