新屋建筑许可获批数上升,民用住宅建造将推动经济发展

获得许可的新屋建筑数目上升,经济学家预计这将推动经济的发展。

统计局的数字显示,一月份获批的许可数在经过季节性调整后,上升了几乎7%, 这将是民用住宅建造商的一个好年头。

这个数字比经济学家们预测的好很多,在经过连续三个月的下降之后强劲反弹,转化为年增长率的话,有34.6%之高。

St George的经济学家Janu Chan说新屋建筑的许可获批数是1983年有记录以来最高的,这将开始给建筑业带来影响。

统计局的其他数字显示,财政赤字在到去年12月底的那个季度里下降了19%,达101亿,和预计相符。

从贸易数字来看,出口增加了,进口减少了。这意味着贸易顺差为经济增长贡献了0.6%,略低于预期。

很多经济学家预计明天公布的第二季度的国民生产总值GDP的增长在0.7%左右。

建筑许可获批数增加的消息让澳元上升,截至周二下午1:42, 澳元对美元的汇率是89.4美分。

 

Economists expect residential construction to boost economic growth this year after the number of new homes approved for construction jumped.

It is set to be a good year for Australia's home builders according to Bureau of Statistics figures which show new building approvals jumped by nearly 7 per cent in January, seasonally adjusted.

The result was much stronger than economists had expected, bouncing back after three months of decline, and puts the annual rate of growth at a strong 34.6 per cent.

Approvals for detached houses led the way in January, rising 8.3 per cent, with other dwellings such as apartments and town houses up 4.6 per cent.

Over the past year, apartments and other multi-unit dwellings rose 46.3 per cent, while detached houses recorded a 26.4 per cent increase.

St George economist Janu Chan says approvals are now at their highest level since records began in 1983 and should start to flow through to actual construction.

"We do expect that to lift throughout this year and for residential construction to provide a strong contribution to growth in 2014," she said.

Other data from the ABS show the current account deficit shrank by 19 per cent to $10.1 billion in the December quarter, roughly in line with forecasts.

Trade figures showed that exports increased while imports declined.

That means net exports will add 0.6 per cent to economic growth in the quarter, which is slightly weaker than expected.

Many economists are now expecting tomorrow's gross domestic product growth to come in somewhere close to 0.7 per cent for the December quarter.

The dollar rose on the strong building approvals figures, and was buying 89.4 US cents around 1:42pm (AEDT).
