Business students host National Party leader
National Part leader John Key says New Zealand’s “brain drain” is the world’s worst and he told students at Massey’s Auckland campus yesterday that half of them would probably be living and working overseas within the next decade.
Mr Key spoke to a lunchtime audience of students and staff at the invitation of the student group at the College of Business.
“The brain drain worries the hell out of me,” he said. ”I have no doubt we can kiss goodbye to at least half of you in the next five to 10 years.”
The National leader extolled the benefits of education for both the individual student and the future of the country, and answered questions from the students.
