New Zealand's economy growth rate was higher than the forecasts for last quarter of 2015. Led by business services, retail, accommodation and construction sectors, the country's gross domestic product (GDP) surpassed the forecasts made by Reuters and Reserve Bank. But, the overall growth eased to 2.3 percent in 2015 from 4.1 percent in 2014.
According to Bill English, New Zealand can sustain low inflation as the central bank aim to reduce borrowing costs, if needed. New Zealand is hoping to achieve economic stability amid the global financial crisis.
