Stats NZ recently released GDP figures for the last quarter, which showed a 0.2% decline in the New Zealand economy compared to the previous quarter’s 3% rise.

However, this decline is not unique to New Zealand and has been identified in many developed economies across the world which have reported either a drop in GDP or a slow in growth.
