New Zealand’s economy shrank by 0.2 percent on quarter in the three months to March of 2022, following a 3 percent rise in the previous period and missing estimates of a 0.6 percent growth. Primary industries (-1.2 percent) drove the contraction, followed by goods-producing industries (-0.1 percent), as lower output in manufacturing (-1.4 percent) and utilities (-0.4 percent) more than offset growth in construction (1.7 percent). Meanwhile, service activities stalled. On the expenditure side, net external demand contributed negatively, as exports slipped 14.3 percent while imports fell at a softer 2.8 percent. On the other hand, both private consumption (4.6 percent) and government spending (2 percent) increased. On an annual basis, the GDP expanded by 1.2 percent, slowing from a 3.6 percent rise in the previous period. source: Statistics New Zealand
