Australia Retail Report Q2 2016

BMI View: The continuing slump of the Australian dollar will hurt the affordability of imported goodsacross all retail sub-sectors.

Despite that, around 30 midmarket and luxury retailers are planning to enterthe Australian market in 2016, on hopes that the rebound of national currency will add a premium onoverall expected household spending.

The real economic growth will exceed the 2% mark andunemployment rate is bound to decline, however, we expect The Reserve Bank of Australia to preserve itshistorically low 2.0% interest rate policy this year.

Cheaper borrowing will stimulate several major subsectors,mostly, housing & utilities.
