Commentary from the report:

BusinessNZ chief executive Kirk Hope:

  • “Australia, the UK and the USA are also posting post-60 results at present, which is indicative of the global economy slowly but surely getting back to some form of normality through increased business activity”.

  • “the Achilles heel of the PSI remains supplier deliveries.  Given supply issues obviously remain a significant issue for many, especially when viewed alongside very strong demand side indicators at present, it points to significant upwards pressure on prices”.
