Australia skilled migration forum held in QLD
An Australia skilled migration forum was held in Queensland last month so that migration agents, key industry delegates and the Government could discuss Australia skilled migration and, for example, its relationship with the education export industry.
The Australia skilled migration forum in Queensland last month focused on issues such as how the international student industry can be used to address specific skills shortages in the country. The Australia skilled migration program allows international students to study in Australia and then lodge an Australian visa application for a permanent Australian visa after graduating.
Over 100 Australia skilled migration agents from the Migration Institute of Australia (MIA), as well as representatives from the Australian immigration department, skills assessment bodies and the international education industry, were present at the forum.
Key speakers included the Australian immigration department's director of skilled migration, Peter Speldewinde, and representatives from the Trades Recognition Australia (TRA) and the Queensland Chamber of Commerce.
