28/05/2013 - The OECD’s latest Economic Survey of New Zealand, to be published on Wednesday 5 June 2013, looks at how the country can build on its growing economic momentum and create more equitable and sustainable long-term growth.
The Survey discusses the structural reforms needed to boost productivity - including those covering innovation and regulation - and analyses progress made toward improving social equity and welfare. A special chapter discusses potential reforms to improve the education system and tackle rising youth unemployment, especially among ethnic minorities.
The Survey will be available to registered journalists on the OECD's password-protected website at 00.01 a.m. local time for immediate release online and in Wednesday morning newspapers.
An Overview with the main conclusions will be freely accessible in pdf format on the OECD’s web site at www.oecd.org/eco/surveys/newzealand-2013.htm. You are invited to include this Internet link in reports on the Survey.
