Australia skilled migration rules to be reviewed for ending labour scarcity

Australia Skilled Immigration

Australia has decided to review skilled migration rules of the country with an aim to help Australian businesses have enough supply of skilled labour force. The decision was taken as Australia skilled migration is important to ensure the growth of the country’s economy during the post-pandemic period.
Australia’s immigration Minister Alex Hawke has asked the joint standing committee of the Parliament to review the Australia skilled migration visa rules of the country. Recently, Reserve Bank of Australia’s governor Philip Lowe had also opined that the country’s broader economic growth would be stunted by the slow population growth.

According to data from the Australian Bureau of Statistics, a total of 2720 people arrived in Australia in December 2020. But the number of people arrived in Australia during the same period last year was 34770. The data from Australia’s Home Affairs Department also shows that the number of skilled visa applications came down by about 11 percent during 2019-20 compared to the previous year.
The standing committee would submit an interim report on Australia skilled migration rules by mid-March. According to the chairman of the Committee Liberal MP Julian Leeser, the enquiry would first focus on whether immediate changes to the skilled immigration rules are required to help the economy recover after the border reopens. Leeser is of the opinion that skilled migration would lead to creation of more businesses in Australia, which would result in more employment for Australians.

ACCI demands increase in Australia skilled migration levels

The Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry(ACCI) has also demanded big changes in the migration program of the country, in the wake of the pandemic. Morrison government has fixed the cap on permanent skilled migration at 160,000 places a year. But ACCI argues that it must be restored to the previous 190000 places. Migrants who are already in Australia on temporary employment visas should also be provided with a pathway for permanent residency, argued Jenny Lambert, employment director of ACCI.
