Both the Reserve Bank and Treasury are forecasting strong growth for the NZ economy over the March year 2001/02 (i.e.
3.5% and 3.7% respectively).
Though we are expecting a recovery, we believe that the risk of a global economic slowdown is sufficient to suggest
that domestic economic growth is likely to be somewhat weaker, averaging approximately 2.8% over the next two years.
