Further to our previous submission to this inquiry, ‘Skilling the Nation: Addressing Australia’s skills and migration needs now and into the future’, which contains 18 recommendations to ensure Australia’s migration strategy complements Australia’s jobs and skills agenda and can respond effectively to the challenges ahead, we are pleased to provide additional comments to the Reviewers that build on our previous submission and respond to some proposals raised in this inquiry so far. Australia’s migration system and skills system must be tripartite and closely linked to ensure alignment with labour market need, and the migration system must be reset to one based on permanent migration, where migrant workers are given security and have their rights respected.
