Immigration Reached Its Peak? Not Auckland
23 Aug 2016
Statistics NZ released their immigration figures for July. They report a declining trend in monthly net gain of migrants. This is very small in real terms. Auckland bucks this trend with record levels still being achieved. When you add internal migration Auckland just keeps on keeping on.
So with immigration, please can we focus on the right people. As far as we are concerned more trades people thanks. Even if we could supply lots more land now, we couldn't build more houses on it as the building industry is at, or beyond capacity.
Maybe all those trade qualified Brits not happy with Brexit should get over here now.
