Submission to the Senate Inquiry into the Protecting Local Jobs (Regulating Enterprise Migration Agreements) Bill 2012
Australia’s pipeline of major capital projects is currently helping to drive our economy’s growth and is laying the foundations for enduring national prosperity.
Enterprise Migration Agreements (EMAs) play an important role in helping us manage temporary and acute labour shortages, including providing important support for companies to manage their risks in being able to deliver projects in a difficult economic environment.
We believe the current policy settings around EMAs get the balance right between protecting local jobs and ensuring the very large projects which are vital to the strength and resilience of the national economy are able to proceed.
By enabling these investments to go ahead, EMAs help secure all the employment and other opportunities for Australians that would otherwise not exist.
