All 18 economists polled by Reuters expect the Reserve Bank of New Zealand (RBNZ) to hold its cash rate at 1.75 percent when it reviews monetary policy on Thursday.

Further, the majority of economists expect the central bank to hold rates at 1.75 percent – where it has been for nearly two years – until the end of the third quarter of 2019.

Meanwhile, six of the 18 economists expect at least one rate hike by the end of 2019.
