The Treasury's Role

The Treasury helps in the preparation of the government's annual Budget by:

  • advising the Minister of Finance on Budget policy
  • preparing the macroeconomic and fiscal forecasts
  • compiling and processing budget initiative proposals from Vote Ministers, and
  • preparing budget documents such as the Estimates, the Budget Economic and Fiscal Update and the Fiscal Strategy Report.

Other Key Publications and Links

Forecasts (Economic and Fiscal Updates)

  • The Treasury's forecasts for government finances and the New Zealand economy are published at least twice a year in Budget documents called Economic and Fiscal Updates (EFUs).
