This is a leading indicator of economic health since businesses react quickly to market conditions, and changes in their sentiment can be an early signal of future economic activity such as spending, hiring, investment, etc. The business confidence used to be pretty high in New Zealand last year but it started turning negative at the end of 2017 and the trend has been deteriorating this year. The current global trade tariffs and other major events have deteriorated the global business sentiment which has affected New Zealand as well and this month is not expected to be any different. Last month it declined to -50.3 points, which is pretty bad.
