Kiwis in 4th safest nation
27 June 2015
New Zealanders live in the fourth safest country in the world
, behind Iceland, Denmark and Austria.
Six out of the top ten most peaceful countries were European,
according to the 2015 Global Peace Index published in June
by the Institute for Economics and Peace.
The study ranks 162 nations based on factors like the level
of violent crime, involvement in conflicts and degree of militarisation.
New Zealand was named fourth safest, down from second last
year, and ahead of Switzerland in fifth, and Australia in

NZ Super Fund Leads the World
22 June 2015
Super Fund chief executive Adrian Orr says the fund had benefited
from keeping its nerve during the global financial crisis
and making investments in stocks that had been heavily sold-off.
New Zealand has the world's best-performing sovereign wealth
fund, new research has found.
With annual returns of more than 17 per cent over the past
five years, the nearly $30 billion New Zealand Superannuation
Fund has outperformed all of its counterparts that publish
figures, according an analysis by JP Morgan published in the
The last few years are likely to have been among the best
years the fund will experience for some time.
Norway's Government Pension Fund Global returned only 4.2
per cent a year in the five years to June 2014.
New Zealand's Super Fund - which was established in 2001
with the aim of helping to pay for the future costs of superannuation
entitlements - has been benefiting from buoyant global equity
Its portfolio includes more than 6000 international stocks.
The fund returned 18.4 per cent in the 12 months to the end
of April this year.

Special Report: An Eye on Auckland's Big Transport Project
17 June 2015
New Zealand's largest roading project is well underway. When
completed, it will connect the Northwestern and Southwestern
motorways at Waterview and allow Aucklanders to get around,
and out of, the city more quickly
As a new Spaghetti Junction rises above Waterview, contractors
are also toiling on a $500 million slew of related motorway
projects to add flesh to the long-awaited western ring route.
And while a mega-machine called Alice burrows unseen on a
different heading - from Waterview to Owairaka to complete
a 2.4km pair of tunnels - little is hidden from motorists'
eyes of efforts across a massive canvas along the Northwestern
Earthworks are being undertaken on a monumental scale to
widen and raise the 4.8km marine causeway which has been traversed
by commuters since 1952.
Also in the public gaze are motorway widening projects from
Waterview back to Western Springs, and from the far end of
the causeway at Te Atatu to Henderson, as well as upgrades
to four existing traffic interchanges along a sprawling 10km
The Transport Agency says completion of those projects and
the $1.4 billion link through the Waterview tunnels will mean
the ring route being "substantially done" by 2017.
Full completion is expected by 2021.
Weaker Dollar Makes Auckland More Affordable for Migrants
17 June 2015
A weaker dollar means Auckland is more affordable for intending
migrants and bank property mortgages interest rates lowest
for many years.
As the lower dollar could be temporary this is a good time
to make the move as it is highly unlikely that dairy price
exports will remain this low beyond the end of the year.
A lower NZ currency will also will bring a more dynamic business
environment - which means more jobs available. Particularly
to benefit will be the many Auckland companies depending on
exporting to Australia. The Tourist industry should also receive
a lift with the lower NZ dollar.
The previous high NZ dollar impacted on the limited finances
of intending migrant families.
The Mercer survey found the weakening of the New Zealand dollar
against the US dollar helped Auckland drop in the Cost of
"Movement in the New Zealand dollar can create a competitive
advantage for New Zealand organisations in terms of attracting
key global talent," said Mercer's global mobility practice
leader, Lorraine Jennings.
"Falling down the rankings of the most expensive cities
to send your workforce to is actually great news for New Zealand
employers wanting to attract global talent."
A weaker New Zealand dollar meant it was more cost effective
for multinational companies to send their talent to our shores,
"International compensation is an increasing concern
for many multinational companies operating in a variety of
economic, social and political contexts.
The survey includes 207 cities worldwide and measures the
comparative cost of each location, including housing, transportation,
food, clothing, household goods, and entertainment.
NZ Migration Rises to New Annual Record in April
21 May 2015
NZ gained 56,800 migrants in the year through April, ahead
of the 34,400 gain in the year earlier period.
New Zealand migration rose to a new annual record in April,
as more students arrived and fewer locals left for Australia.The
country had a net gain of 56,800 migrants in the year through
April, ahead of the 34,400 gain in the year earlier period,
Statistics New Zealand said.
Migrant arrivals were 16 per cent ahead of the year earlier
period, while departures declined 11 per cent, the agency
New Zealand annual migration has broken records for nine
consecutive months as people are lured by the nation's brighter
That's helping stoke economic activity, pushing up demand
for housing in Auckland, the nation's largest city, and underpinning
vehicle sales while reducing pressure on wage inflation by
boosting the supply of labour.
New Zealand's strong economic outlook is continuing to draw
in foreign workers in historically very large numbers."
A decline in migrant departures reflects fewer people leaving
for Australia, where the economic prospects are weaker following
a slowdown in the mining industry.
Sylvia Park to undergo $195m expansion
18 May 2015
The hugely successful Sylvia Park Auckland Shopping Mall
is to undergo $195m expansion
The country's biggest listed property investor, Kiwi Property
Group, is looking to raised more the $150 million to help
fund the expansion of the Sylvia Park retail precinct.
Last December, Kiwi Property agreed to buy the Apex Mega
Centre for $64m next to its flagship Sylvia Park site to increase
its footprint in Auckland.
It also announced a one-for-nine entitlement offer to raise
$151.9m to help fund the Sylvia Park expansion and repay bank
debt. The shares would be sold at $1.20 each.
Chief executive Chris Gudgeon said the company is evaluating
a 20,000 square metre retail expansion at an estimated cost
of $150m, and a 7,500 square metre office development estimated
to cost about $45m as part of the Sylvia Park expansion.
Shortage in skilled workers creating more jobs than candidates
19 March 2015
Employers and recruiters find it difficult to fill vacancies
as demand for skilled staff, outstrips supply, especially
in hospitality and tourism.
A shortage in skilled managers and workers is a growing problem
for New Zealand, say employers and recruiters.
Managers in the engineering and cafe and restaurant sectors
are in the fastest growing sector of demand, and in the professions,
the most wanted are those for the occupational and environmental
health field as well as actuaries, mathematicians and statisticians.
The most needed technicians and trade workers are metal fitters
and machinists. The number of skilled job vacancies advertised
online grew by 0.4 per cent for the month of February, and
up 5.8 per cent in the past year to February, says the latest
Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment's Jobs Online
This month's increase in skilled vacancies was driven by
the hospitality and tourism industry (up 1.8 per cent). The
occupation group that saw the biggest month-on-month increase
was managers (up 0.6 per cent). Skilled job vacancies increased
in eight out of 10 regions over the past month.
The 75 per cent jump in demand for mathematicians came as
no surprise to Dr James Russell, an Auckland University quantitative
ecologist in its school of biological sciences and department
"We have seen this continuing trend over the last decade,"
he said. With the generation and collection of large amounts
of data on the internet, there was a need for people with
a whole new skill set to develop methods of analysing data
in real time.
Dr Julia Novak, teaching fellow at Auckland University department
of mathematics, said maths was about problem solving and thinking
abstractly and outside the box to solve problems in new ways.
"It looks like the job market is reflecting that these
skills are in demand for all sorts of different jobs, such
as research and development."
A spokesman for the Northern Employers and Manufacturers
Association said that last year more than 300 members were
asked if they thought there would be a skill shortage.
"A solid two-thirds of those surveyed said yes, there
The recruiter said a net 30.1 per cent of employers intended
to increase permanent staff numbers, up two percentage points
(pp) compared to the previous quarter, and marking four consecutive
quarters of employment growth.
Investment in Auckland have been leading the employment charge,
however post-election we're now seeing Wellington, led by
the resumption of large government transformation projects,
starting to come to the party," said Roman Rogers, executive
general manager for Hudson New Zealand.
Nationwide, property & construction was the profession
with the strongest positive hiring sentiment (59.7 per cent),
followed by supply chain & procurement (42.2 per cent),
technical & engineering (36.5 per cent), financial services
(36 per cent), information, communication & technology
(35.8 per cent), office support (21.3 per cent), and accounting
& finance (18.9 per cent).
Pete Macauley, New Zealand regional manager of international
recruitment company Michael Page, said the Jobs Online monthly
report truly reflected the market.
Property and construction sector recruiters observed an increasing
job flow and hot demand for talent exceeding demand.
Graham Darlow, chief executive of Fletcher Building's Construction
Division, said the construction pipeline in New Zealand was
looking very strong and Fletcher Construction was confident
it could staff the number of exciting projects ahead.
BCITO has been signing new apprentices at the rate of 50 a
week so far this year, said its chief executive, Ruma Karaitiana.
Auckland Chamber of Commerce chief executive Michael Barnett
said that for the past year around 30 per cent of members
had reported difficulty finding skilled people.
"Skill shortages are starting to show across a broad
spectrum and that is going to constrain growth that we should
be capable of," he said.
"In the information, communications and technology sector
there are probably 400-500 jobs right now that you could fill
at varying levels."
Auckland's eateries and bars have enjoyed a boom over this
summer but owners say their biggest problem is getting bright
young workers to step up to a middle management role.
Economy grew 3.3pc last year - best since financial crisis
19 March 2015
A jump in retail and accommodation stats lifted GDP stats
to 0.8pc for the last quarter of 2014, said Stats NZ today.
The New Zealand economy expanded in the fourth quarter as
tourists drove growth in retailing and accommodation, and
property sales increased demand for real estate services.
Gross domestic product rose 0.8 per cent in the fourth quarter,
from a revised 0.9 per cent increase three months earlier,
according to Statistics New Zealand. The economy grew 3.3
per cent in calendar 2014, the fastest pace since 2007, before
the global financial crisis.
The pace of growth broadly matched expectations in a $238
billion economy that has benefited from migration-fuelled
population growth, an improving labour market, lower borrowing
and fuel costs, and rising house prices. Tourists also helped
drive growth, spending $7.4 billion in 2014, up 13 per cent
from the previous year. Tourists helped lift retail trade
and accommodation by 2.3 per cent in the fourth quarter, the
highest since the Rugby World Cup-boosted third quarter of
"While some of this growth comes from more spending
by New Zealanders, overseas visitors had a bigger impact,"
said Gary Dunnet, the government statistician's national accounts
manager. "Spending by Chinese, US and UK visitors all
increased in 2014, though Australians spent less."
Rental, hiring and real estate services grew 1.2 per cent
in the final three months of 2014, reflecting an increase
in house sales. The annual gain was 1.6 per cent.
"Q4 growth will continue to be largely led by domestic
forces, with strong population growth, low interest rates
and healthy household confidence boosting demand," economists
at ASB said in a preview of the GDP data. "We expect
these areas to remain key drivers of growth over 2015."
Growth is seen abating only slowly, according to the NZ Institute
of Economic Research's consensus forecasts published this
week. That showed expectations for 3.3 per cent growth in
the 12 months ending March 31, slowing to a 2.9 per cent pace
in 2016 and 2.8 per cent in 2017. Today's data confirms the
economy is continuing to grow at a sturdy pace, while inflation
Manufacturing grew 1 per cent in the fourth quarter, led
by a 5.4 per cent gain for petroleum, chemical, plastics and
rubber. Imports of intermediate goods such as fuels, lubricants
and industrial supplies jumped 7.5 per cent.
Food, beverage and tobacco manufacturing rose 1.5 per cent
in the quarter, while exports of meat rose 3.7 per cent and
dairy exports rose 2.5 per cent.
Metal product manufacturing fell 2.5 per cent and wood and
paper product making fell 5.2 per cent.
Growth over H1 2015 will likely slow, dragged by the decline
in milk production but we expect domestic demand to remain
buoyant and the Reserve Bank is largely focus on this momentum.
Jane Turner, ASB senior economist
The expenditure measure of GDP rose 1.1 per cent in the fourth
quarter, matching the third-quarter pace. Spending by overseas
visitors accounted for a 6.1 per cent gain in exports of goods
and services, while household consumption gained 0.6 per cent.
The data showed a 0.5 per cent decline in real gross national
disposable income (RGNDI), a measure of purchasing power,
in the fourth quarter, the first drop since the second quarter
of 2012. Statistics New Zealand said RGNDI growth had reflected
strengthening terms of trade, which fell in the fourth quarter.
RGNDI rose 5 per cent in the year.
ASB senior economist Jane Turner said the final quarter of
2014 finished "on a reasonably strong note."
"Quarterly growth of 0.8 per cent was in line with market
and Reserve Bank expectations. The breakdown of growth was
largely domestic led, but with an added boost from very strong
tourist spending, and fits with our view that underlying momentum
was robust over the second half of 2014."
Turner said quarterly growth was bang on the Reserve Bank's
March monetary policy statement forecast. She said the Bank
would be encouraged by evidence of building momentum in underlying
economic demand and reasonably broad-based growth.
"Growth over H1 2015 will likely slow, dragged by the
decline in milk production but we expect domestic demand to
remain buoyant and the Reserve Bank is largely focus on this
momentum. We expect that inflation pressures will start to
pick up over 2015, albeit from low levels."
Turner said she continued to expect the Reserve Bank to leave
the OCR unchanged at 3.5 per cent over the foreseeable future,
although still maintain a bias of a near-term rate cut (25
per cent chance) due to persistently weak inflation pressures.

Tables turned - NZ needs Aussie workers
November 26, 2014
The cross-Tasman tide has now fully turned.
Aside from virtually claiming the Bledisloe Cup as its own,
New Zealand can boast a stronger economy than Australia, a
budget surplus this year and a lower unemployment rate.
And now it wants Australian workers.
A series of New Zealand job fairs are being held across Australia
to try and lure some of the Kiwi expats living in Australia
back home and any Aussies who want a job to fill an expected
50,000 job vacancies over the next two years.
"Unemployment is dropping and we are starting to see
skills shortages," New Zealand Employment Minister Steven
Joyce told ABC radio on Wednesday.
New Zealand companies are looking for 2500 workers across
a range of areas - computer software and design, construction
and engineering and manufacturing.
Mr Joyce said between 1600 and 1700 people turned up at a
two-day job expo in Perth last weekend.
About 60 per cent were Kiwis thinking about going home and
the remainder were Australians or people who had recently
moved to Australia.
"It's a case of targeting both expat Kiwis to return
... and Australians well," Mr Joyce said.
And people appear to be answering the call.
October was the first month since late 1993 where there was
net migration into New Zealand from Australia.
"We expect that to continue. That's really because the
New Zealand economic story has been getting progressively
stronger," Mr Joyce said.
Booming exports have been part of New Zealand's success story,
fuelled by its 2008 free trade agreement with China that has
been a boon for its dairy industry.
The jobs fair rolls into Sydney Town Hall this weekend and
then it moves on to Melbourne and Brisbane early in 2015.
Auckland Hebrew Congregation has a new rabbi
Rabbi Friedler was born in Israel, studied law and rabbinical
After a year practising law and finding himself buried in
paperwork, he realised he was suited to a career that was
more people orientated and found a niche with rabbinical studies.
“Judaism is all about being inclusive and communicating with
people. That side of things really appealed to me. The prayer
we recite when we return the Torah to the ark is about following
the ways of pleasantness and the path that leads to peace.
I want to market Judaism in the same way to the community.”
Our new Rabbi met Shiri fourteen years ago. Originally from
Cape Town, she had just made aliyah a few weeks earlier and
was studying logistics and economics in Israel.
Our Rabbi was headed to Cape Town for a year and thought
it was a good opportunity to swap notes. Clearly the meeting
had a lasting impression and despite heading off in different
directions, they were engaged the following year.
After three years leading a community in Adelaide, the family
shifted to Perth and Nathanel became the assistant Rabbi in
a community of around a thousand members.
They embraced an active lifestyle in Perth, where Shiri
studied industrial design and the family enjoyed swimming,
running and cycling. They have three boys Yedidya (10), Hillel
(7) and Shiloh (3) who have adapted easily to the Auckland
lifestyle and attend Kadimah.
The AJI and Rabbi Friedler look to continue the close relationship
we have had with the previous Rabbi Altschul.
NZ Job Prospects Sunnier
For the first time since the global recession hit, it is now
easier to find a job in NZ than Australia.
A sharp drop in New Zealand's unemployment rate from 6 per
cent in March to 5.6 per cent in June has brought the local
jobless rate below Australia's - 6 per cent - for the first
time since March 2009.
Employment agencies said they were seeing New Zealanders
returning after their jobs dried up in Australia.
Migrants from Australia - mainly returning Kiwis - expecting
to stay here reached 22,200 in the year to June.
Migrants going in the opposite direction plunged from 48,000
in the year to June last year to 30,500 in the latest year,
resulting in the smallest net outflow since 1995.
Last year the Australian mining boom collapsed.
Tradestaff managing director Kevin Eder said many Kiwi tradespeople
were returning. "I've just come back from Western Australia,
and every single person I met in the recruitment game or the
mining game, their opening statement was how much things have
slowed down" he said.
An Auckland recruitment agent specialising in transport
and logistics, Ross Upton, said he had started to see workers
coming home in the past three months.
"We are certainly having Kiwis coming back who perhaps
haven't found Australia to be the land of milk and honey that
it was made out to be" he said.
Wiri factory manager Laurie Smith said that in the past
year the factory had started up a second shift for the first
time in eight years, and hired 24 extra workers taking it
to 91 staff.
"We are planning on increasing the second shift into
a full second shift," he said. "That will be another
15 people over the next six to eight months."
The AJI has cancelled its Facebook page due to New Zealand's
privacy laws. All immigration enquires should be send via
our contact page.
If you want to make Facebook contact with the AJI on general
non specific questions on settlement or general migrant information,
you can still do this through Stephen
Katz' Facebook page.
Stephen is one of AJI's senior committee members, who would
be only too happy to receive your enquires.
