29/05/2015-The latest OECD Economic Survey of New Zealand, to be published on Wednesday 10 June, assesses the factors behind the country’s strong economic performance in recent years as well as actions that can be taken to make growth more sustainable and inclusive. The Survey proposes potential reforms to address bottlenecks in housing, improve urban infrastructure and skills, reduce inequalities in living standards, reverse rising environmental pressures and ensure that government finances remain sound.
The Survey will be available to registered journalists on the OECD's password-protected website at 01:00 CET (11:00 NZST) for immediate release.
An Overview of the Economic Survey, with the main conclusions, will be freely accessible on the OECD’s web site at: http://oecd.org/new-zealand/economic-survey-new-zealand.htm. You are invited to include this Internet link in reports on the Survey.
Journalists will be allowed advance access to the electronic version of the OECD Economic Survey of New Zealand, by e-mail and under embargo, the day before release.
The Survey will be sent by e-mail on request only. In asking to receive the Survey under embargo, journalists undertake to respect the OECD’s embargo procedures.
