The Westpac-McDermott Miller consumer confidence index in New Zealand fell by 4.4 points to 102.7 in the third quarter of 2021 from 107.1 in the previous quarter. It was the lowest reading since the third quarter of 2020 in the wake of the latest lockdown. However, the drop in confidence has been much less stark than last year when Covid first arrived. While households are nervous about the economic outlook, they’re still feeling fairly secure about their personal financial situation. Widespread disruptions to global supply chains and rising shipping costs appear to be weighing on spending appetites. source: Westpac Banking Corporation, McDermott Miller
