NZ has faced another gut-wrenching tragedy, in a city that has already had to overcome a huge amount of adversity since 2010. The people of Christchurch will remain uppermost in the hearts and minds of everyone.

ASB has set up a Christchurch support fund bank account (12-3149-0137463-00) for those wanting to make donations to help the affected families, with the proceeds going to the Christchurch Foundation's Our People, Our City Fund (please note that ASB will be unable to issue tax receipts).

Although their significance now seems to pale into the background, this week still brings a number of key economic events. Thursday morning has NZ’s all-important Q4 GDP release, preceded by the US Federal Reserve’s latest interest rate decision. Tuesday night has the latest GlobalDairyTrade auction.
