New Zealand Factory Activity Growth at 3-Month High
The BusinessNZ Performance of Manufacturing Index in New Zealand inched up to 53.8 in March of 2022, from 53.6 in the prior month and coming above the long term average of 53.1. It was the seventh straight month of expansion in the country’s factory sector, although respondents unsatisfied with supply side issues and input cost inflation outweighed those with a more optimistic perspective by a two-to-one factor. Positive contributions came from higher levels of employment (52.4 vs 52.0 in February), which rose to a level not seen in six months; new orders (61.0 vs 58.6); and finished good stocks (53.5 vs 50.2), the highest since last October. On the other hand, output growth slipped below its long-term average (50.9 vs 51.7), due to the impact of the omicron wave.
