The Migrant Perceptions Survey’s looks at each region (and in some cases sub-region) of New Zealand. Samples of no less than 100 were taken from each region. Questions relating to: tourism, accessing education, securing accommodation, finding employment, safety, healthcare, accessing services, ease of doing business and community engagement were included.
Migrants are very important to New Zealand and they should be supported to settle in our communities. According to research by the AsiaNZ Foundation Asian Migrants are more likely to start a businesses and less likely to commit crimes or be unemployed than locals
Councils can take a leading role in addressing Asian Migrant concerns. Making meaningful change doesn’t need to be complex or expensive. Addressing these issues will benefit both the community as well as the local economy.
