This snippet via Bank of New Zealand (BNZ) on their terms of trade adjusted purchasing power parity estimate of long term fair value for the NZD

- underpins the strong terms of trade dynamic that supports the NZ economy and valuations for the NZD.
ps. The purchasing-power parity (PPP) model of exchange rate valuation (this is a very brief explanation) says that in the long run exchange rates should move towards the rate that would equalise the prices of an identical basket of goods and services in any two countries.
