The Polynesian Maori reached New Zealand in about A.D. 800. 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. New Zealand assumed a nonpermanent seat on the UN Security Council for the 2015-16 term.

Indicateurs macroéconomiques

Economic growth is projected to moderate somewhat to 3% in 2016 and 2.7% in 2017. The impact of lower dairy prices on exports and an end to stimulus from the earthquake-related rebuild will curb activity, although the slowdown in construction will be attenuated by expansion elsewhere in response to high immigration. Immigration will also sustain growth in private consumption. Inflation will rise but stay below target.

The Reserve Bank has continued to lower its policy rate and signalled more cuts to come, as persistently below-target inflation risks pushing already low inflation expectations down further. Weaker global growth prospects and recent currency strength have accentuated this risk. Fiscal policy is still on a consolidation path, which seems appropriate given robust domestic demand.

Reducing barriers to FDI and to competition in the electricity, transport and telecoms sectors would facilitate greater investment and innovation, increasing productivity and reducing prices. The innovation framework should be strengthened, for example by reinstating the R&D tax credit. Greater urban infrastructure would promote productivity-enhancing densification. Further reforms are required to enhance skills development, especially for disadvantaged groups.
