Financial News: New Zealand Business Confidence Strengthens In October

New Zealand Business Confidence Strengthens In October

10/08/2020 - 01:21:00 (RTTNews)

(RTTNews) - New Zealand business sentiment strengthened further in October, preliminary survey data from ANZ showed Thursday.

The business confidence index improved to -14.5 percent from -28.5 percent in September. The own activity index gained 9 points to +3.6 percent.

Investment intentions were little changed and remain subdued at 1.4 percent. But employment intentions lifted again, up 9 points to just a net 3 percent of firms intending to reduce employment.

Profitability expectations were up another 9 points, with expected costs 7 points higher. The export expectations indicator climbed to 2.1 percent from -4.7 percent.

However, the backward-looking indicators continued to show the impact of the renewed Alert Level restrictions.

The ANZ said key tests for the economy lie ahead: the winding down of the wage subsidy and the lost summer for tourism.
