Figures from the Australian Bureau of Statistics suggest that more Aussies are permanently relocating overseas to take advantage of business opportunities.

The Australian Bureau of Statistics say in the year to April, more than 92,000 Australians permanently departed the country, an increase of nearly 5.5 per cent on the previous year. While New Zealand was the number one destination, Asian nations featured prominently in the top 10, with Singapore and Hong Kong the most popular.

Damien Bray, CEO of the Asian branch of video content marketing business Brand New Media, moved to Singapore four years ago.
