According to the ABS household final consumption and new machinery and equipment were the main positive contributors to the expenditure on GDP – both at 0.5 per cent.

The most significant negative influence was new building construction at -0.3 per cent and imports at -0.5.

News earlier today however points to a more positive outlook for construction moving forward with housing approvals rising in July to 7.7 per cent.
