It’s been an eventful start to 2018. Many of us are seeing New Zealand’s business world become a little less certain, whether that’s from fluctuations in the equity markets, the ongoing debate on trade and investment or a heightened focus on regulation and climate change.
In our survey findings for this year, New Zealand CEOs were some of the most pessimistic about the global economy, reflecting a lot of uncertainty about the next 12 months. Confidence levels here are nearly half the level they are in Australia and the USA. New Zealand CEOs aren’t as concerned about their own growth prospects though, with almost 90 per cent expecting to grow this year.
This publication is just the start of our CEO Survey this year. Alongside the growth outlook, we’re releasing two further short reports, on talent and technology, that we believe will be dominating conversations around the executive this year.
