Victoria University professor Norman Gemmell has been presented the 2012 NZIER Economics Award for excellence in economics of relevance to New Zealand.

Last night at NZIER's annual meeting in Wellington, Gemmell was recognised for his outstanding contributions to international literature on fiscal policy and economic growth. His work related to public spending and taxation policies was praised.

He was instrumental in forming the Tax Working Group that culminated in what the finance minister called the biggest tax reform in a quarter century with the Government's 2010 changes.

Previous winners of the NZIER Economics Award include Dr Don Brash, Roger Kerr and Dr Brian Easton.
