Fruit exports dominated by gold kiwifruit – Stats NZ media and information release: Overseas merchandise trade: November 2021

Fruit exports dominated by gold kiwifruit – Media release

20 December 2021

Gold kiwifruit continues to dominate fruit exports in an otherwise challenging market, Stats NZ said today.

In the year ended November 2021, gold kiwifruit made up 47 percent ($1.9 billion) of total fruit export value, while green kiwifruit made up 23 percent ($923 million).

Both increases were quantity driven, with prices falling compared with a year ago. Gold kiwifruit have a traditionally higher unit price than green. Since the kiwifruit season in 2016, which is typically from March to November, gold has overtaken green in terms of value. In the 2020 season, gold kiwifruit also overtook green in terms of volume.

National accounts input-output tables: Year ended March 2020 – Information release

20 December 2021

Input-output tables show the relationships between industries, the goods and services they produce, and who uses them. The tables contain detailed data about the production and expenditure measures of gross domestic product (GDP).

What are input-output tables?

Input-output tables are a powerful analytical tool for describing the structure of New Zealand’s economy. They show the relationships between industries, the goods and services they produce, and who uses them. Input-output tables have many uses, including:

  • estimating the effect that changes in government policy have on key economic variables
  • examining the impact of changes in producer prices or wages on the consumers price index
  • exploring the reliance of industries on imports and estimating their contribution to exports.
