December 2011 Quarter

Auckland continues to top the rankings in the ASB / Main Report Regional Economic Scoreboard, with the region getting an extra boost from hosting the Rugby World Cup games in the knock-out stages.

Tasman and Nelson both edged closer to the top of the table, reaching second and third place respectively, reflecting a boost to population following the arrival of quake-affected Cantabrians. Meanwhile, Canterbury looks to be regaining its feet despite the challenges presented by ongoing earthquakes, with housing market activity in particular picking up over the second half of 2012.

The ASB / Main Report Regional Economic Scoreboard takes the latest quarterly regional statistics and ranks the economic performance of New Zealand’s 16 regional economic areas. The full report is attached (PDF FILE) , and available online.
