Event overview

Australia's migration program shapes our modern nation. Through migration, we participate in a global skill network, boost connectedness and meet international standards of citizenship.

The interplay between low natural population growth and the scale of permanent and temporary immigration informs population policy and directly impacts economic, social and environmental well-being. Policy settings and program effectiveness are increasingly important to how our businesses, cities and our economy grow.

CEDA's final research report for 2016, Migration: the economic debate investigates reforms to improve alignment of Australia's migration program, economic development and nation building.

All attendees receive a copy of CEDA's research report.
