Event Overview

Join CEDA when we present analysis of Australia’s temporary migration program, its components, purpose, local labour market impacts and possible improvements.

CEDA identifies population as one of five priority areas for reform.  Temporary migration is a feeder to population growth, a skilled workforce and key sectors of the economy.  Moving from episodic debate to strategic and sustainable frameworks that manage immigration, population growth and settlement will provide our cities, regions and people with a framework for future growth.

For a preview of the report, watch CEDA CEO Melinda Cilento give a brief rundown of Effects of temporary migration. Watch the video here.
