Event overview

CEDA’s latest research examines the effects of temporary and skilled migration on population growth, our labour market and the economy.

Australia is currently home to more than two million migrants on temporary visas. These migrants make a substantial contribution to our workplaces, growth industries and regional communities. In regional South Australia in industries such as agribusiness, wine, food processing and hospitality and tourism employers may need to sponsor temporary and skilled workers for jobs they have been unable to fill through the existing workforce.

Skilled migration is critical to growing South Australia’s economy. Skilled migrants will complement and expand our local talent and skills to grow future industries, fill important workforce gaps that cannot be met locally and create jobs.

While there has been a spotlight on the country's permanent migrant intake, there has been far less focus on Australia's temporary migrant intake.
