Improving Credit Conditions: One Key to Unlocking Economic Growth in New Zealand

New Zealand is not going to get wealthy by selling more expensive houses to each other. We know from ANZ’s Business Outlook Survey that it is difficult to get credit, with the perception it will be harder since 2016. The finger can be pointed at the regulator, and banks, which we advocate for on behalf of businesses and the wider economy. We also believe better bankable businesses are essential to improving credit conditions.
