Building a picture of New Zealand manufacturing
AbstractNew Zealand manufacturing activity fell sharply in the 2008/09 recession, and there has been only a modest recovery since then (something seen in other countries too). Exports of (non-primary) manufactured goods have held up relatively well, but domestic production and sales have been weak. Our analysis suggests that the very weak domestic construction sector can explain much of the continued weakness in manufacturing activity.
