Attracting talent through skilled migration

THE Joint Standing Committee on Migration will hold three days of public hearings between March 1 and 3.

Committee Chair Julian Leeser MP said, "At these hearings, the committee will hear from a range of important stakeholders in order to gain a rounded understanding of how Australia’s skilled migration program can better support the post-pandemic recovery.

"The committee will receive evidence from peak bodies, government departments, unions, professional associations, venture capital firms and small businesses," Mr Leeser said.

‘The committee is seeking to table an interim report on immediate adjustments to the skilled migration program to support pandemic recovery, and Australia’s attractiveness to entrepreneurs and talented individuals later in March. These hearings will be vital to informing the committee’s conclusions."

The committee is still accepting submissions for this inquiry. Submissions addressing the terms of reference will be accepted until March 31, 2021.

More details on the inquiry are available on the committee website.
