Capex for 2013/14 is now expected to decline by 5%, or $9 billion. The RBA's forecast for non-mining investment to fill the investment void has also been overly optimistic with a survey indicating that non-mining investment was expected to fall 0.6% and manufacturing investment expected to decline 9.6%.
