NZIER report to MFAT & MBIE.

Our research shows the power of the Integrated Data Infrastructure (IDI), enabling data-driven analysis to address myths and bring out new insights. This quantitative research was backed by a dialogue with practitioners using decision support software to understand the blockers and enablers of employing people from the Pacific on temporary work visas. The research on the Essential Skills Visa (ESV) also found positive impacts for New Zealand.
