Submission to the Senate Legal and Constitutional Affairs References Committee: Inquiry into the effectiveness of the current Temporary Skilled Visa System in targeting genuine skills shortages
The Australian Chamber is a strong advocate for a workforce development strategy that focuses on the skills development of Australian workers supplemented by a flexible and responsive migration system to fill the gaps. Australian businesses increasingly compete not just locally but globally for talent and skills. This submission outlines the importance of a responsive temporary skilled migration system, highlights the current shortcomings of the program and provides recommendations on how the system can be improved.
