Australia immigration want an intake boost

The Australian industry group are hoping that the federal government can find a way to increase  the number of immigrants accepted into Australia next year, they are ideally aspiring to a rise of around 15% . The business group are expecting the government to enhance the intake of overseas applicants from the current 190,000 up to 220,000 during 2014 and 2015, the main focal point of the increase will be aimed at skilled migrants.

Innes Willox, the chief executive of the Australian industry group feels there is no reason why now is not the best time to make a substantial rise in the acceptance of skilled immigrants from overseas. The increase will give level out the age range between the young and the currently ageing workforce, as well as strengthening industries such as engineering, construction, health and mining due to these areas seeing a shortfall of skilled members.

A large proportion of industry based companies have a shortage of workers who specialise in specific skills. In order to close the gap on the shortage and improve productivity, Australia's government will need to raise the amount of successful candidates being accepted by around 2.8 million people who are fully qualified in a desired trade. Ideas are being welcomed for suggestions regarding the most efficient ways to remove the current shortage. Enlisting overseas skilled workers is possibly the fastest way to stop the shortage, at the same time the successful candidates can help by using their own personal experience and education to teach Australian workers how to improve their knowledge.

It is believed that once the 220,000 limit has been met, another significant boost in immigration might be required in the future in order to maintain productivity. This recent revelation comes as a shock to some due to current level of unemployment bordering 5.8% with an anticipated rise to over 6%. The chief executive of the Australian industry group has reportedly said that even though there are a number of Australians who are out of work, there is not a sufficient amount of workers skilled to acceptable levels to efficiently cover the shortage.

Improving the quality and levels of education, along with suitable training and relevant courses, will impact massively on increasing the skills available within the Australian community. An increase of overseas workers will benefit greatly for a fast improvement in basic essential skills in areas involving engineering, computing, technology, science and mathematics.
