Located in what is known as Oceania, New Zealand is a beautiful island country about 900 miles East of Australia.
It is one of the last major land areas to be settled by humans. The first to inhabit New Zealand were the Māori people who are Polynesian people who canoed to New Zealand around 1200 – 1300 AD. Next came English settlers and those are the primary languages spoken on the island today.
We find that many of the happenings in Australia do make their way to New Zealand. And Network Marketing, MLM has become widely accepted in New Zealand.
