Ki­wis head to Aus­tralia

Townsville Bulletin - - Investor -

POP­U­LA­TION gains from mi­gra­tion weak­ened in Jan­uary as more New Zealan­ders suc­cumbed to the at­trac­tions of Aus­tralia, and econ­o­mists ex­pect the trend to get stronger. Fig­ures from Sta­tis­tics New Zealand show a sea­son­ally ad­justed net gain of 450 per­ma­nent and long term ar­rivals in Jan­uary, the low­est level since last June. Un­ad­justed, per­ma­nent and long term ar­rivals out­num­bered de­par­tures by 800 for the month, down from a gain of 2500 in Jan­uary 2010, with the main fac­tor be­ing a 1400 in­crease in de­par­tures of New Zealand cit­i­zens to Aus­tralia.
