New Delhi, Sep 11 (UNI) New Zealand will appoint an Education Counsellor at its High Commission here by the end of this year to exploit the Indian market for its education sector, a senior official said here today.

''Considering India as a big market for education sector, the New Zealand government has decided to place an Education Counsellor in its High Commission at New Delhi,'' New Zealand Trade Commissioner Paul Vaughan told UNI.

The name of the person, who will be appointed by December this year, has not been announced but the government has confirmed the position, he added.

''The Education Counsellor will be responsible for developing relations between India and New Zealand universities'' the Trade Commissioner said.

The appointment of the Education Counsellor would help Indian students seeking admission in various New Zealand universities.

Education Counsellor in India will be New Zealand's fourth, after Brussels (Capital of the European Union), Washington and China.

New Zealand recorded 45 per cent increase in Indian students, with 1,400 students taking admission in various institutes this year.

Over 2,500 Indian students are studying in this Southern Pacific country, which has a very low unemployment rate and shortage of skilled workers that offers better job prospects for trained people.

New Zealand had revised and put in place a new visa policy last year.

India is among four top education source markets of New Zealand, besides China, Vietnam and Korea.
