Business welcoming possibility of even spread of migrants
The Government wants a more even spread of skilled migrants across the country. In a bid to entice new immigrants to regional New Zealand, Prime Minister John Key has announced plans to offer bonus points to immigrants who move to centres other than Auckland. Business New Zealand is one organisation behind the plan. It's chief executive Phil O'Reilly says it's largely good for business and he says skilled migrants are also good for the employment of New Zealanders.
