A recent global survey which compared answers from 520,000 interviews over 154 countries discovered that New Zealand is a dream migration destination! If everyone in the world could select where there wished to live our population would rise by a staggering 134%. The survey, compiled by Gallup’s Potential Net Migration Index discovered that those wanting to relocate to New Zealand are at a really positive and high level.
If everyone who wanted to live in New Zealand were able to then the population would rise from 4,242,048 to an astronomic 9,926,393 residents.
In this survey an overall score was given, Australia received a total of 148 points while New Zealand took the lead with 184 points.
Of course, the structure of New Zealand would make it impossible to support a population of nearly 10 million residents and this would take away much of what makes the country so great. Often called a ‘heaven on earth’, New Zealand is famous for its beautiful scenery and exotic wildlife. It was one of the last countries on earth to be populated by man who means it had longer to grow naturally, and acquire more wildlife which are unique only to this country.
