Weekly Overview
NZ growth prospects keep improving so it is unsurprising that migration flows are rising very strongly.
Attached and located here is the latest edition of Brain Gain NZ - a publication where I aim to improve the match-up between keen NZ's expats looking to return home and Kiwi businesses able to effectively utilise their skills, experience, drive, and connectivity.
