Staying Connected with Home

Online networking site Kea New Zealand has launched a global ‘census’ of expatriate New Zealanders, dubbed ‘Every Kiwi Counts’, and aimed at connecting the estimated one million of us living overseas. “New Zealanders living outside the country are some of our most talented people and already make a big contribution to the country’s future development,” global chief executive of Kea New Zealand Sue Watson says. “Every Kiwi Counts is focused on finding out more about these important citizens, and enabling them to make even stronger connections with home,” Watson says. “The OECD says New Zealand is the developed country with the highest proportion of its educated population living overseas.” As an extra incentive, all who complete the survey or “tell a friend” go into the draw to win prizes from Air New Zealand, the All Blacks and Billi Tees. Complete the online survey at www.everykiwicounts.com. (18 April 211)
