The Joint Standing Committee on Migration will today hold a public hearing with the National Skills Commission for the inquiry into Australia’s skilled migration program.
Committee Chair Julian Leeser MP said, “The hearing will be a chance to understand in greater depth the role of the National Skills Commissioner in driving Australia’s current, emerging and future workforce skills needs.”
“Since the closure of Australia’s borders, the Committee has heard of existing skills shortages across many industries being exacerbated and new shortages emerging.
“It is clear to the Committee that Australia’s skilled migration program can help deliver economic benefits, enhance productivity and create jobs, and the National Skills Commission’s role is integral to this.”
More details on the inquiry are available on the Committee website.
