The Kiwi Expat Association (KEA) wants us to think of New Zealand as not just the four million living here but the one million or so living overseas. Absolutely.
They have a little survey to register where our expats are living. If liiving overseas go to their website and spend a couple of minutes there filling in their 12 question survey. If you want you can also fill in an unofficial census form so they can compare stats of expats to the official census stats when published.
They already have about 16,000 registered.
