Skilled migration inquiry hearing in Sydney

The Joint Standing Committee on Migration will hold a public hearing in Sydney on Monday 12 April at the NSW Parliament.

Committee Chair Julian Leeser MP said that ‘Following the tabling of the interim report on 18 March 2021, the focus of the Committee will be the remaining terms of reference such as the skills lists, the administrative requirements for Australian businesses and the complexity of Australia’s skilled migration program.’

‘Australia has always been an attractive destination for migrants and the current challenge is to ensure that we can streamline processes to make it easier for Australian businesses to find and hire the skilled workers they need,’ Mr Leeser continued

‘Hearing from the peak associations as well as their small businesses will assist the Committee in its consideration of the issues at all levels.’

More details on the inquiry and the hearing program are available on the Committee website.
