‘Migration and the movement of people is one of the critical issues confronting the world’s nations in the twenty-first century.’

Join us for the book launch of Going Places by Julie Fry and 2013 TalentNZ Journal contributor, Hayden Glass, on Thursday, 17 March 2016 from 12.30 pm to 1.30 pm.

Going Places is about the economic contribution of migration to and from New Zealand. Can immigration, in economic terms, be more than a gap filler for the labour market and help with national economic transformation? And what is the evidence of the effect of migration not just on house prices but also on jobs, trade and broader economic performance?

Building on Sir Paul Callaghan’s vision – creating ‘a place where talent wants to live’ – this book explores how we can attract skilled, creative and entrepreneurial people born in other countries, and whether our ‘seventeenth region’ – the more than 600,000 New Zealanders living abroad – can be a greater national asset.
