New Zealand Chamber of Commerce Singapore, in association with ANZ Bank Singapore presents ANZ Post Budget Update 2015 - New Zealand & Asia with ANZ’s Khoon Goh and Ernst & Young’s Matt Andrew.
The New Zealand budget will be released on the evening of Thursday 21st May, allowing time for us to review, forecast and discuss our predictions over an evening cocktail.
This annual Post Budget update, in conjunction with ANZ, is always well received by Kiwi expats wanting to stay abreast of New Zealand’s economic plans and the business people here who are wanting an idea of the challenges, opportunities and trends facing the New Zealand and Asian economies.
The rock star is slipping down the charts.
The New Zealand economy was labelled a “rock star” economy in 2014. It certainly did not disappoint with GDP growth of 3.3% in 2014, beating most other developed economies (and most importantly, surpassing Australia’s 2.7% growth). However, there are signs that the rock star is slipping down the charts.
Will the economy be able to come up with another hit to climb back up the charts? Or will it follow the path of OMC where they only had a one hit wonder to their name?
We will outline the key features of the budget and consider the budget in the context of its competitor nation (recent) budget announcements. Speakers will also consider New Zealand's recent economic performance in comparison to its Asian neighbors. These comparisons will pose the question: Is New Zealand's relative economic performance improving or declining over recent years?
We will be joined by experts Khoon Goh (Senior FX Strategist ANZ) and Matt Andrew (Partner, Asia Pacific Operating Model Effectiveness International Tax Services, Ernst & Young), who will share and discuss the key challenges, opportunities and trends facing the New Zealand and Asian economies into 2015.
- What impact will the budget announcements have on NZ's targets?
- Where are the opportunities?
- Which industries can be attracted?
This informative seminar will include a Q&A session with these two knowledgeable leaders.
