Statements on New Zealand's Long-Term Fiscal Position

Page updated 22 Nov 2016

The Public Finance Act 1989 requires Treasury to produce a statement on the Crown’s long-term fiscal position at least every four years. These statements provide 40-year projections on the fiscal position, identify challenges that will face future governments, such as those arising from society's ageing population, and provide members of the public with information on evidence-based options for meeting those challenges.
