Australia's Experience in Managing its Immigration Program and its Linkages to the Labor Market

Australia’s Experience in Managing its Immigration Program and its Linkages to the Labor Market

  • 1 October 1996

Immigration to Australia over the past fifty years
comprised mainly permanent settlers. Currently the
movement of people to Australia has become a more
diversified process.
Australia has responded to this and made
new arrangements to expedite the process to allow
commercial companies to attract needed foreign
labor. Streamlined entry for long-term arrangements
gives business more flexibility to build international,
competitive links.
The speaker talked about the current Australian
program for permanent migrants, which seeks to
achieve a balance between its social, economic and
humanitarian objectives, with widespread community
support and acceptance. The government ensures this
by administering a program that will unequivocally
assist Australia’s future development and allow it to meet
international humanitarian obligations.
