Which is best for migration OZ or NZ.

We are AngMoh husband, Asian wife.  Both very ambitious and with great career prospects and both very entrepreneurial.
 
Want to live somewhere friendly, accommodating to migrants/mixed couples and any family that may come along in the future. Somewhere with nice weather, uncongested, safe, with great career opportunities, nice housing market to invest in, maybe start a small business. 

I really fancy Perth for the weather, but the scenery and outdoorsy life of NZ and all the stuff we read online about it makes it rather appealing and of course there's the rugby.

If you think that the world economy is about to crash and burn, go to New Zealand. They export most of the food they grow.It is also beautiful, but not much happens there.
If you want a great career, Aus is a better bet

Seriously OP, what's wrong with you - stay in Singapore, everyone lives in multicultural, multiracial, multilingual harmony. Over 80% of the population own their own homes. If you're as ambitious and entreprenurial Singapore is the place to be - little red tape, lots of government support.

And it's accommodating to mixed couples. Certainly many Aussie cities are congested traffic wise except for Slowbart and Darwin.

Stay in Singapore man - what's wrong with you?

That should be "Which is better for migration...", a question mark and "OZ" is not an abbreviation unlike "NZ:".

""We must keep our heritage and respect the culture and language of our different races and be proud of Singapore. Never be impressed by the white man who thinks he is superior to you. We are no less and probably more capable than he is. If Papa and his Old Guard colleagues did not believe that, they would not have fought for independence and built up this country".

Then by staying and working in Singapore you've got the best of all worlds! You earn a good living here in one of the world's best countries and then get to go away elsewhere to the great outdoors whether it be Lake Toba, Kota Tinggi, Batam or Europe or Mount Everest.

Your problem is solved.

OP, neither Australia or New Zealand can claim the following. I urge you and your wife to contribute to Singapore's gene pool as we need more talented people foreign or not.

Can your country claim the following which Singapore justifiably can? It constantly wins awards for:

World's leading airport
World's best public housing
Relatively pollution free (e and oe on haze)
Corruption free civil service
Corruption free police force
More reserves than UK, Australia or NZ
Constantly one of the world's top 3 busiest seaports
One of the world's most mathematically proficient children
A multiracial, multilingual people who live in harmony
One of the world's best newspapers
Relatively drug free
You can walk the streets at night in relative safety
Great weather
Efficient service - everything works, streets are cleaned, mail delivered etc.
One of the world's best workers (documented by Perc and Beri)
A Senior Minister which the UK seriously wanted as their leader and whom Margaret Thatcher admires
A country that's able to defend itself
Has one of the world's tallest hotels.
Financially stable banking system.
The world's longest manmade waterfall.
The world's longest pohpiah
Largest Collage Made Of Chinese New Year Cards
Singapore
Most Number Of Photos Posted On Instagram In 2 Hours
At 42 x21x17.65mm, Singapore's Z-Nano is the world’s smallest optical mouse....
and the list of greatness goes on

THIS IS THE GREATEST NATION ON THIS PLANET!

Singapore among top 20 nations in global prosperity index, its economy is No. 1
 

SINGAPORE - Singapore's economy ranked first in the world in a global prosperity sub-index and Asean region, while the Republic ranked 17th among 142 countries in the index released by the Legatum Institute on Monday (Nov 2).

Norway topped the overall index, ranking among the top 10 for all categories but not coming out tops in any one of the eight categories which include education, entrepreneurship & opportunity, governance, health, personal freedom, safety & security, and social capital.

Singapore disloged Switzerland to take the top spot in the economy sub-index this year, climbing one spot from last year, London-based Legatum found.


The index also found that Singapore has the second highest capital in the world at US$240,750 per worker while 47 per cent of its manufactured exports are classifed as "high tech", the third highest in the world.

Singapore performed worst in the personal freedom category, ranking 38th in the world, while it stood 12th in entrepreneurship & opportunity as well as safety & security.

Among Asean nations, Malaysia came in next highest, ranking 44th overall followed by Thailand, Vietnam and the Philippines.

South-east Asia's biggest economy, Indonesia, climbed up 21 places in the last seven years - the most by any country in the world, to rank 69th overall.

Canada was the freest country in the world, ranked among the top five, including Norway, New Zealand, Iceland and Ireland to be most tolerant towards immigrants.

United Kingdom was the world leader in enterprise.

Legatum first published the index in 2007. "The purpose of the index is to spark debate and to encourage policy-makers, scholars, the media, and the interested public to take an holistic view of prosperity and to better understand how it is created," the Institute said on its website.

Given the PAP's consistent victories in the polls, it seems people prefer a comfortable life to "freedom" whatever that is

Lived in NZ for nearly a decade, but not any longer.
Came there from Singapore career supercharged, like you appear to be, but found there different angles to life (while still having a good career). Maybe this will also happen to you.
So go to NZ. I miss it terribly.
