Reserve Bank of New Zealand Deputy Governor Geoff Bascand and the General Manager of Financial Stability will share insights from the latest Monetary Policy Statement, providing a picture of the New Zealand economy, how it is performing and where the RBNZ thinks it is heading next.
The Deputy Governor will answer these questions and more:
The effect of the wage subsidy and mortgage deferrals on the economy – where are we really at?
Rising pressures in the housing market in terms of lending and borrowing behaviour – will the Central Bank bring back LVRs?
What happens to the economy if we are living in a world of negative interest rates?
This breakfast has limited tickets and will be hosted by EY
