Event overview

Australia’s migration program has played an important role in the nation’s economic success and, compared to the rest of developed world, currently has a high level of community support. 

CEDA's next report, Migration: the economic debate, will examine what changes in migration policy are required to sustain the community support necessary for it to contribute to the nation's economic development.

Join report authors and policy commentators to discuss the report’s recommendations and examine issues including:

Improving transparency, public accountability and fairness of the migration policy;

The short and long term contribution of migrants to the nation's productivity;

  • How the migration program could be reshaped to allow a larger migrant intake to build a greater Australia.
  • How temporary migration has grown to dominate immigration to Australia; and
  • What changes are required to the migration program to maintain broad community support.

All attendees will receive a complimentary copy of Migration: the economic debate.
