Migration review

The Australian Constructors Association’s submission to the Government’s review of Australia’s migration system emphasises issues of labour supply and productivity, and their intersection with migration policy. Our overarching message is that migration policy should be calibrated to productivity growth objectives, rather than to gross labour force numbers. While filling labour shortages is important, there needs to be more focus on leveraging the migration program to enrich the nation’s skills base with world-leading capabilities.
