According to the most recent surveys, business conditions and household sentiment are solid, and on an upwards trend.

- Surveys show business conditions are solid, while small business and consumer sentiment has strengthened post-election.

- Partial data point to moderate, over 2% annualised GDP growth, in the December quarter.
