The inflation rate of New Zealand soared unexpectedly as much as 2.2 percent in the first quarter which is the top-level over five years. Yet, the central is still committed keeping the interest rates low. Hence, the consumer price index (CPI) hovered in the middle range of the Reserve Bank of New Zealand's (RBNZ) within the 1 to 3 percent target range which they have attempted to lift higher for more than a year. The CPI ascended to 1 percent in the first quarter exceeding the expected 0.8 percent which also transposes the annual growth of 2 percent by analysts.
This hike in inflation was influenced by short-term gains because of high oil and food prices, a tax hike on alcohol and tobacco and the increasing costs of housing construction. The inflation is ascending although at a sluggish pace which keeps the RBNZ heedful according to the senior economist of the Australia and New Zealand (ANZ) bank.

The policy for non-performing loan transfer was loosened to allow to permit lenders to sell unprofitable debts that are formerly bundled by 10’s which is now by 3’s. This is the most recent action of the China Banking Regulatory Commission (CBRC) to help alleviate the problem of a huge pile of debt because of sluggish economic growth. The idea is the smaller number of the bundle would allow banks to get rid of bad debt at a faster rate.
Margins have been narrowed down following concurrent reduction in interest rates as a mountain of bad debt increases that slowed down the economic growth rate of the country over the past 25 years.

The RBA decided to maintained the rates at a rock-bottom of 1.5 percent after the decline in August and May last year while most economists have foreseen that will be sustained this week.

The central bank is sanguine in the economy but maintains a mixed labor market. Although the wages growth anticipated being sluggish for some time. The price inflation lingers above 2 percent in the previous quarter for the first since 2015 although the objective of the RBA is to keep inflation rates below 2 to 3 percent but higher than 3 percent in the next few years.

RBA Governor Philip Lowe mentioned that there is no need for further stimulus since the low cash rates have affected household debt which will not be favorable for the “national interest”.

Singapore labeled as the Lion City is expected to wrap up the year reaching 1.9% growth in the economy which is a little bit lower compared with the 2% surge in 2016.

The research firm further noted that the external outlook of the sovereign city-state rely largely on the global environment while the global geopolitical climate was expected to sustain an undetermined status as risk branched out due to EU exit, also the possible growth in global trade protectionism
In light of this, a negative impact could hit different sectors in Singapore which could result in a fluctuating economic performance.
While some external uncertainties may further influence the employment projections and increase in wages seems weak during the current reorganization of the labor market.
When it comes to production means, the development looks odd for the three major sectors as the manufacturing beat the previous quarter attaining a 6.6% boost.
