New Zealand is an island nation, located in the South Pacific, which lay untouched by human hands for many thousands of years. As a result, it has a unique biodiversity of plant and bird species. It has a mild temperate climate, a large number of national parks and a growing tourism sector derived from the country's natural beauty.
A new HSBC Report predicts that New Zealand will be the top performer in the developed world by 2050, with annual GDP growth of 2.9%. This outstrips predictions for GDP growth of other developed countries including Australia at 2.6%, Canada 2.5%, Luxembourg 2.5% and Switzerland 2.3%.
New Zealand has comprehensive employment law and regulations, and many jobs have flexible working hours, leading to a good work-life balance.
If your family is coming with you to New Zealand, they can enjoy the beautiful natural environment, quality public schools and a well-supported public medical system.
