In early 2018 Consumer Confidence in Indonesia and New Zealand is higher than mutual neighbour Australia. Indonesian Consumer Confidence ended 2017 at 155.4, and it is almost 30pts above the latest ANZ-Roy Morgan New Zealand Consumer Confidence Rating of 126.9 in January, and more than 40pts higher than the latest ANZ-Roy Morgan Australian Consumer Confidence Rating of 115.3. Indonesian Consumer Confidence soared following the Global Financial Crisis in 2008-09 and has been consistently higher than either Australia or NZ since late 2010. In fact, Indonesian Consumer Confidence has not dipped below 140 since April 2012 (139.6) and it reached a high of 161.4 in August and November 2014, when current President Joko Widodo was elected (July 2014) and inaugurated three months later. New Zealand Consumer Confidence has also been consistently higher than in Australia in the last four years. Since September 2013 New Zealand Consumer Confidence has been higher than in Australia in 50 out of 52 months and more than 10pts higher for two long periods in particular: November 2013 to June 2015 and November 2016 to the present. New Zealand Consumer Confidence reached a recent high of 129.9 in September 2017 as New Zealanders went to the polls. In contrast, Australian Consumer Confidence has lagged its neighbours for much of the past half-decade after an initially strong recovery from the Global Financial Crisis of 2008-09 with the impact of the "Mining Boom" peaking in 2010-2011.
