WELLINGTON, Aug 29 (Reuters) - New Zealand business confidence fell further in August as the economy faces domestic and global headwinds, an ANZ Bank survey showed on Thursday.
The survey's headline measure showed a net 52.3% of respondents expected the economy to deteriorate over the year ahead. That compared with a 44.3% pessimism level in the previous poll in July.
Firms’ views of their own business activity in the next 12 months fell to -0.5% from 5% in the previous reading in July.
