New Zealand economic performance rankings

NZ Ranking eco

New Zealand is in the top 11 percent of world economies in terms of GDP per capita, and ranks first on the Corruption Perception Index, third in Ease of Doing Business and fifth in the Index of Economic Freedom.

These are some highlights from information compiled by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade to compare New Zealand's economic performance with that of other countries.

The information draws on a range of well-known sources and extends beyond pure economic measures such as GDP and GDP per capita to surrounding measures such as ease of doing business, economic freedom and quality of life.
