New Zealand Economic and Financial Overview 2012

Published 8 June 2012

This Economic and Financial Overview provides a description of New Zealand based on information available up to the end of January 2012. Fiscal and economic forecasts are based on the material contained in the Pre-election Economic and Fiscal Update published in October 2011. After the content of the Overview was finalised, the New Zealand Treasury produced a further update of some key fiscal and economic data. This update was published in the Government's Budget Policy Statement on 16 February 2012. A full set of revised forecasts are published in the Government's Budget 2012, published in May.

The delivery of this document at any time does not imply that the information is correct as of any time subsequent to its date. This document does not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy any securities of New Zealand.
