Migration Forum 2023

"With the shortages we see in many other countries, how we show up globally and how we provide pathways to help migrants integrate their skills and talent into Australia matters." Ming Long AM, Chair, Diversity Council Australia.

CEDA hosted the annual Migration Forum in Sydney, where this year's theme focused on attracting skills and talent to Australia. The Hon. Andrew Giles, Minister for Immigration, Citizenship and Multicultural Affairs, and other key stakeholders including Amitabh Mall, Chief Analytics Officer, Woolworths Group and Steph Cousins, CEO, Talent Beyond Boundaries, gathered for an in-depth discussion on the future of Australia’s migration system. 

Re-visit CEDA Senior Economist, Andrew Barker's speech from the Migration Forum, where he discussed topics including wage differences in primary and secondary applicants and the female migrant wage gap.
