Flight of the Kiwi: Perspectives on migration from Aotearoa/New Zealand

15 January 2010


In the Statistics NZ migration figures for November 2008, of the 37,500 New Zealand citizens who left the country (permanent long term departures), 35,200 moved to Australia, followed by 600 to the United Arab Emirates and 500 to Canada. Why are so many New Zealanders flocking to Australian shores, and what can be done to stop the so-called Kiwi ‘brain drain’?

Hosted by The Centre for Independent Studies, this forum for NZ expats and interested parties will ask (in the nicest possible way!): What policy reforms would be necessary to entice you home?

Panelists: David Kirk MBE, Dr Don Turkington, Luke Malpass and Andrew Patterson
