18/06/2019 - The latest OECD Economic Survey of New Zealand, to be released on Tuesday 25 June 2019, analyses the factors underpinning the country’s stable economic expansion, and highlights key opportunities to improve well-being outcomes and their distribution. The Survey discusses ways to advance the government’s strategic priority of raising well-being for all New Zealanders, notably through legislative processes, budgetary policy setting and new well-being frameworks. Thematic chapters assess how migration and housing policy can boost well-being by building a more productive, sustainable and inclusive economy.
The Survey will be available to registered journalists on the OECD's password-protected website at 23:00 CET (21:00 GMT) on Monday 24 June 2019 for immediate release.
OECD Deputy Secretary-General Ulrik Vestergaard Knudsen will present the Survey with New Zealand Minister of Finance Grant Robertson during a press conference in Wellington starting at 9:00 local time, at the Beehive Theatrette, in the Executive Wing of the Parliamentary Buildings (Molesworth Street, Wellington).
An Executive Summary of the Economic Survey, with the main conclusions, will be freely accessible on the OECD’s website at: http://www.oecd.org/economy/new-zealand-economic-snapshot/. Media are invited to include this Internet link in reports on the Survey.
