    NZ Below Expectation Economic Growth

    The New Zealand economy climbed by 0.5 percent in the first quarter of the year but still lower than market expectations as the construction sector weakened. The forecast figure of the central bank is 0.9 percent while the analysts predicted it to attain 0.7 percent, which obviously fell short from both predictions.


    Despite positive growth for the milk production and a moderate growth of GDP, these were out shadowed by weak data from the construction sector and the mixed results from the service sector. The construction data declined by 2.1 percent for Q1 that negated the 4.3 percent augmentation in agriculture particularly the milk production.


    An economic analyst described this phenomenon to be transient and the economy will advance at estimated of 3.0 to 3.5 percent this year. Also, other sectors are performing well but there is no need for the Reserve Bank of New Zealand (RBNZ) to adjust its cash rate from a record low of 1.75 percent.

    Fed Implements Rate Hike, Maintains Outlook for Next Hike

    The US Federal Reserve has pushed through with its planned interest rate hike for this month while outlining its plans to continue with stricter monetary policies in spite of the countryís weak inflation rates. FOMC officials approved the central bankís third rate hike within a six-month period and hinted at possibly another rate hike just before the end of 2017. Fed Chair Janet Yellen stated in a press conference following the announcement that the bankís plans of unwinding its policies might be implemented sooner than later, especially if the countryís economic status meets the expectations of the Fed. Moreover, the central bank is also looking into a three-quarter point rate increase for 2018 just like its previous projection last March.

    Aussie Economy can Grow Further, says Philip Lowe
    RBA Governor Philip Lowe thinks that the Australian economy will still be able to grow further if the countryís officials will be able to overcome several political hurdles, although he also warned that disappointing wage gains data will most likely to continue plaguing developed countries. Lowe also stated that the central bank believes that the countryís economic growth will continue advancing during the next two years due to an overall surge in the status of the international economy. The political environment within Australia has become more and more polarized over the years, as parties attempted to gain an unfair electoral advantage from losing reform proposals. This has prevented the Australian economy to properly implement any kind of economic reform since 2000ís goods and services tax.
