The GDP for 3Q came in better than forecast overall:
Adjusted GDP 3Q/ Annual:

However, 2Q GDP number was revised lower to +0.1% from +0.5%.
The NZD spiked higher in immediate response, but soon came back off on the revised lower 2Q GDP figures.
Retail industry growth, particularly spending on electronics such as appliances, mobile phones, and computers, and solid service industries growth were significant contributors to the rise in GDP.
