* The Canterbury region of New Zealand was struck by an earthquake in February 2011 and Christchurch, New Zealand's second most populous city, was the worst affected. The earthquake caused damage to infrastructure, consequently reconstruction works is expected to support the infrastructure construction over the forecast period. This is based on, there being an over-demand for construction services in New Zealand; this demand is expected to peak in 2016 and decline thereafter.

Tourism is the second-largest earner of foreign exchange in New Zealand. Several recent campaigns, including '100% Middle Earth, 100% Pure New Zealand' and 'Go All the Way', were successful in attracting tourists; tourism sector growth will support leisure and hospitality buildings construction over the forecast period.
* New Zealand's economy is expected to grow by 2.7% in FY2014 (ending March), led by strong domestic demand and an anticipated recovery in the growth of New Zealand's key trading partners. Rebuilding work, following the Christchurch earthquake will continue to support investment in the early part of the forecast period, but will slowdown from 2015 onwards. Healthy growth in domestic investment and consumption, as well as improvement in exports will support overall economic growth.
