Since the end of the Global Financial Crises in 2012, the shape of New Zealand’s demographic profile has changed significantly, not the least being the rise of temporary migrants, changes to the country’s ethnic diversity and a period (2013-2019) that has seen the highest percentage and numerical population growth derived from net migration gains. COVID-19 has meant a halt to this period of high inward migration (both permanent and temporary), but other demographic shifts mean that immigration now has a critical role in both skills recruitment and as a key contributor to population growth. This demographic shift is not unusual in high income countries and as the 2020s and 2030s proceed, population stagnation (or decline) and the need to consider national population profiles (as they become more inverted) is going to be a common challenge amongst high income countries. Competing for immigrants might become a more contested and competitive space. But this rather begs the question of what sort of immigration and how best to recruit and approve immigrants.
