The article discusses the dairy industry's positive contribution to New Zealand's balance of payments and the economy, as a whole. According to Finance Minister Bill English, the current account had narrowed to 8.3 billion New Zealand dollars, or 4% of gross domestic product (GDP), in the year to December 2011. The Treasury also expects it to increase by 6%, driven by a lift in imports for the Canterbury rebuild and an increase in business investment.
