2013 New Zealand Government Budget

Through the looking glass

Finance Minister Bill English has delivered Budget 2013 to the nation against the backdrop of improving economic conditions and growing business confidence.   After five Budgets, including two successive "zero Budgets," how does Budget 2013 represent continuity and is the Government’s ‘slow and steady approach’ to economic management starting to pay dividends?

Deloitte’s team of experts has analysed this Budget’s major announcements and their likely impact on New Zealand business and the wider economy. We’ve looked in-depth at the nation’s bank account, the mixed ownership model and why it matters for capital markets growth, trends in public sector spending, and the Government’s approach to complex disaster recovery and commitment to the Christchurch rebuild.
