New Zealand is one of the secluded places on earth and as such lacks the manpower for an accelerated rapidity in expansion of the country. This issue has been addressed by the government of New Zealand through many methods of migration made possible for people from all over the world to move to New Zealand for a better standard of living. Jobs in New Zealand are abundant for foreigners in many areas and specialties in these areas will fast track the immigration processes. The main industries in which New Zealand currently focusses on are farming and construction. As a country that relies on agriculture and production of dairy goods as the main source of income, New Zealand faces a shortage of manpower in that sector. Meanwhile, a few other areas have been identified as ‘future growth areas’ and mastery of these sectors will open many doors for foreigners to work in New Zealand. These ‘future growth areas’ are biotechnology, information communications technology and creative industries. These areas have been identified to offer New Zealand considerable opportunity to increase its prosperity in the future. A worker who is identifiable in any one of the sectors is eligible to apply to move to New Zealand under the ‘Skilled Migrant Category’ and has a high chance of gaining employment and residency at the same time.
