New Zealand as a migrant destination
Despite global financial turmoil, New Zealand has remained economically strong. Employment levels have slipped globally and New Zealand is no different in that regard however, the New Zealand Government is committed to brand New Zealand and is constantly striving to forge free trade agreements. A notable recent free trade agreement was forged with economic powerhouse, China, in 2008 and Hong Kong in 2011. Previous free trade agreements were reached with Thailand, Chile, Brunei and Singapore in the Trans-pacific Strategic Economic Partnership.
Stable monetary policy, free trade agreements and government support of Brand New Zealand means that potential migrants have many opportunities to establish themselves in New Zealand. The government is also constantly reviewing the employment market to identify areas of skill shortages. With this information we can assist you in migrating to New Zealand with your existing skills, or suggest training or re-training if you are new to the employment market or considering a career change.
New Zealand Culture
New Zealand was colonised by the British in the mid 19th century and as a result, New Zealand has a mix of British and Māori culture. Because of liberal immigration policy, the demographics are constantly changing. Asian culture has an established presence which has resulted in Asian cultural observations such as the Chinese Lantern Festival held yearly in Auckland’s Albert park.
New Zealanders – Kiwis, like to be known for ingenuity, sometimes referred to as the “number 8 wire mentality” (number 8 wire is popularly used as fencing in rural New Zealand) the premise of which is that Kiwi’s can invent or fix anything with whatever they happen to have lying around.
The weekend activities in New Zealand range from BBQs, fishing and beach adventures in the summer, to rugby, skiing and hot pools in the winter. The extremely varied seasons and environment make for a wealth of outdoor activities.
