The next generation of Australia’s immigration system will be one that puts a greater emphasis on skills rather than numbers, according to a senior official at the Australian Bureau of Statistics.
The new approach to Australia’s visa system will include a focus on the skills required to operate a visa processing centre, such as the kind of job training Australians need to enter the labour market, and how to integrate them into the wider Australian workforce, Mr Ross says.
That means the government is putting a greater focus on those who have the skills to be the next generation.
ABS data shows that the number of people in the Australian workforce aged between 15 and 24 increased from 27.9 million in 2008 to 34.9 in 2017, while the number aged 25-34 grew from 9.4 million to 10.6 million.
Those numbers are expected to continue to increase.
“The next generation is going to be going to Australia to do the job of their parents and grandparents and grandparents,” Mr Ross said.
“If they are not the people who were here when Australia was first formed, they are going to go back to a country with very low unemployment and a lower level of economic activity.”
That’s what’s going to happen in the next 10 years.
“Mr Ross says that Australia’s current immigration system is not working.”
The problem is we are not getting the numbers to match the skills and the skills are not being applied,” he said.
Australia’s immigration policy has been plagued by problems in recent years, but the government says it has now made a “major investment” in skills training and training and supports.”
In our next government we will invest in skills development, we will ensure that our skills are going into the workforce and we will make sure that our immigration system continues to work,” Mr Wang said.
Mr Wang also said that he was committed to investing $5 billion in the country’s labour market.”
We want to create the kind, the talent that is needed to succeed and to build the jobs of the future,” he added.
