Abstract

This paper presents a definition of the tradable and non-tradable industries within the production measure of GDP.

Previous work is built on, using recently published input-output tables to determine which industries are tradable or non-tradable in terms of export orientation and import substitution. We produced chain-volume time series using these definitions.

New Zealand is a small, open economy and as such there is interest in the relative performance of the tradable and the non-tradable sectors. The paper concludes that the stronger growth in the non-tradable sector has been driven by the increasing importance of the service industries to New Zealand.
