Zoom Conference with Julian Leeser MP, Federal Member for Berowra, Chair of Joint Standing Committee on Migration
The Joint Standing Committee on Migration Chair Julian Leeser MP said that “The Committee has heard repeatedly that skilled migrants create Australian jobs. With over 500,000 temporary visa holders leaving Australia during the COVID pandemic, we need to bring back skilled migration, to fill essential gaps & to help create more jobs for Australians.”
“Skilled migrants provide much needed skills to fill skills gaps, offering businesses the opportunity to better meet demand & expand, and to pass on their skills to Australians,” Mr Leeser said.
“Australia has always been an attractive destination for migrants. Our excellent response to the health & economic challenges of COVID-19 has made Australia an even more attractive destination. Now is the time to attract highly talented individuals & businesses to Australia.”
Julian provided an outline on the Committee’s inquiry into skilled migration in a post-COVID19 Australia.
