The Savings Working Group considered a wide range of information during its deliberations.

This information has included:

  • material on a wide range of issues related to savings that is already in the public domain,
  • public submissions that have been received (and published on the Submissions page),
  • working drafts of documents that their authors have yet to finalise and publish, and
  • documents that the Savings Working Group has commissioned.

The table lists background documents prepared as background material for the Savings Working Group.

They have been released by the Savings Working Group to help stimulate public discussion on issues of national saving in the New Zealand economy.

The documents released are generally draft material and the authors reserve the right to withdraw or revise them.
