Result moderation

The 2013–2019 forecasts adopted a different method to previous years. In 2013, we formed a technical committee to moderate and ameliorate the forecast results. The technical committee consisted of members from our Ministry, Air New Zealand, Tourism Industry Association, Auckland International Airport, the New Zealand Institute of Economic Research and Tourism New Zealand.

This new process proved to be a better approach in combining quantitative modelling with industry knowledge.
