GDP (gross domestic product) is defined as the monetary value of all the goods and services produced by an economy over a specified period. 

It includes consumption, government purchases, investments, and exports minus imports. In practice GPD is equal to the sum of wages, salaries, profits and operating surplus arising from all economic activity in the industry and/or region (BERL).

BERL has been monitoring Central Otago’s GDP for over 15 years.
