Economic Buzz: New Zealand Consumer Confidence Decelerates In Q2

New Zealand consumer confidence continued to be positive in the second quarter of 2018, with an index score of 108.6, the latest survey from Westpac Bank showed on Wednesday. Thats down from 111.2 in the three months prior, although it remains well above the line of 100 that separates optimism from pessimism. The decline was in response to a slowing housing market, Westpac said.
