Release of GDP data delayed again

Statistics New Zealand has again delayed the release of gross domestic product data.

The figures, which will show economic activity in the March quarter, were due for release in June but were delayed until Thursday to ensure they properly accounted for the Canterbury earthquake.

The Government agency says it needs yet more time and the figures will now be released on on 14 July.
