Letter to Joint Standing Committee on Migration

15 February 2023

There is a need for a fundamental reset of the migration system with a focus on lifting Australia’s productivity. This must be done by putting the need to build the nation’s human capital at the forefront of the system. The migration system needs to be redesigned to ensure that the separate needs of the nation, the long-term (highly skilled human capital) and the shorter-term (labour shortage) requirements are both able to be serviced.

This letter should be read in conjunction with the BCA’s submission to the Migration Review (Submission on the review of Australia's migration system - Business Council of Australia (bca.com.au))
