Subscribers and readers of Pacific Periscope would have received the invitation and link to participate in the second Pacific Trade Invest (PTI) NZ Business Intel Survey focusing on key economic themes of interest to Pacific businesses. The link was emailed on December 3.The first edition of the quarterly survey was sent to respondents in September this year and responses were assessed later that month with results published in October. Thank you for your participation in the first edition of the survey.

The survey is conducted in the first half of the final month of each quarter (March, June, September and December) to gauge activity across the Pacific Islands Forum countries with feedback received from a range of business stakeholders around the region each quarter.

It collects feedback from the Cook Islands, Federated States of Micronesia, Fiji, French Polynesia, Kiribati, Marshall Islands, Nauru, New Caledonia, Niue, Palau, Papua New Guinea, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Tonga, Tuvalu and Vanuatu.

The survey aims to help inform businesses and policy makers on economic trends by providing timely gauges of economic momentum and expectations for growth, employment and investment going forward.

Survey results are processed by PTI NZ and Bagrie Economics, a boutique research firm that specialises in independent, authoritative analysis of the New Zealand economy and economic issues generally.

The PTI Business Intel Survey is a partnership between PTI NZ and Bagrie Economics, which has extensive market experience and provides regular, reliable intelligence and insight independent of any financial organisation.

PTI NZ encourages to participate in the second edition of the survey for the final quarter of 2018, which was mailed out yesterday. Please check your inbox for the email with the link.

The results of the quarter ended September 2018, the first in the series, indicate that businesses across the Pacific are in a buoyant mood.
