New Zealand’s Quality of Life for New Migrants An independent, immigration consultancy firm, NZ Migrants

Topic 1: New Zealand’s Quality of Life for New Migrants An independent, immigration consultancy firm, NZ Migrants. has requested a report to better understand what new migrants are satisfied with in their current lives in New Zealand. Elizabeth Grove, Director of NZ Migrants, is also interested in whether there are any major differences in satisfaction between different ethnic, gender, or age groups. The company will use the findings from your report and other reports to send a larger document to NZ’s Minister of Immigration; therefore, your report should include feasible recommendations that may be implemented by the govemment for improving new migrant’s quality of life in the short- and long-term. Topic 2: Goods and services tax (GST) The New Zealand government is always challenged with the task of allocating appropriate levels of funding towards public services (e.g., hospitals, schools) or industries (agriculture, tourism). Increasing taxes is one source of funding for the government and attention has recently looked at potential changes to the goods and services tax (GST). Instead of altering the rate, which is currently set at 15./., some members of parliament are voicing their opinions in favour of implementing additional or reduced taxes on specific goods (e.g., a sug& tax, a soft drink tax, fruits and vegetables as GST-free). A New Zealand based group, Economic Think Tank, requests an investigation into the effectiveness of implementing these types of taxes. Choose one product or service for the focus of your report. Is it an additional tax or a reduced tax? Have other countries introduced similar GST programmes? Provide recommendations for the implementation of this tax surplus or reduction.
