Einführung

The Polynesian Maori reached New Zealand sometime between A.D. 1250 and 1300. In 1840, their chieftains entered into a compact with Britain, the Treaty of Waitangi, in which they ceded sovereignty to Queen Victoria while retaining territorial rights. That same year, the British began the first organized colonial settlement. A series of land wars between 1843 and 1872 ended with the defeat of the native peoples. The British colony of New Zealand became an independent dominion in 1907 and supported the UK militarily in both world wars. New Zealand's full participation in a number of defense alliances lapsed by the 1980s. In recent years, the government has sought to address longstanding Maori grievances.

Makroökonomische Indikatoren

Solid economic growth is projected to continue at 3% in 2018 and 2019. Private consumption will slow with lower net immigration and moderation of wealth gains from house price increases. Residential investment will be supported by demand in Auckland and government funding through the KiwiBuild programme. Government infrastructure spending will also rise, while business investment should recover from weakness in late 2017 as capacity remains tight.

Projected increases in interest rates and government spending will improve the macroeconomic policy balance. Both should also serve to reduce housing market pressures, but resolution of infrastructure and planning constraints in Auckland is critical to easing affordability challenges, boosting weak productivity and avoiding a further house price breakout.
