A Closer Look

Kiwis abroad seen as asset to NZ | Otago Daily Times Online News : Otago, South Island, New Zealand & International News

Rather than stem the brain drain of Kiwis going offshore to further their careers, one of Dunedin’s greatest exports is recommending students embrace it.

Prominent lawyer, educator and London council executive Dame Judith Mayhew Jonas is in Dunedin this week to attend her Otago Girls’ High School class reunion of 3S (1962) and give motivational talks to pupils.

Some political commentators say the brain drain is bad for the New Zealand economy, but Dame Judith disagrees. She believes travelling broadens the mind.

“After Ireland, New Zealand has the second-largest number of people living outside their country, proportionate to the population.

“I think there has been a brain drain in New Zealand, and it’s important in a global world that people go out of their countries and see how other countries work.”
