Con­fi­dent think­ing

NZ Business - - COVER STORY -

The June 2018 West Coast Busi­ness Opin­ion sur­vey re­vealed that con­fi­dence is re­turn­ing to the West Coast re­gion – demon­strat­ing a re­silience from the dif­fi­cult eco­nomic times of the past five years.

A net 30 per­cent of busi­nesses are now feel­ing op­ti­mistic about the next 12 months – a fig­ure that, ac­cord­ing to the ANZ Busi­ness Con­fi­dence Sur­vey, eclipses that of New Zealand as a whole. The Buller dis­trict is the most op­ti­mistic at + 47 per­cent.

On top of that a net 20 per­cent of busi­nesses ex­pect to em­ploy more peo­ple – again, a much more pos­i­tive re­sult than the rest of the coun­try.
