Australian Immigration Policy may Effect Education Industry
Professor Peter McDonald is the director of the Australian Demographic and Social Research Institute at the ANU. He told David Mark while migration numbers have reached record highs, they’ve also been very volatile….
…The principle problem I think is that we need two things in Australia. One is a plan about future labour supply. We don’t have that. We don’t even estimate future labour demand in Australia over the next even three, four years.
The other major problem we have is about transport infrastructure and I don’t see that there is any major plan for transport infrastructure in all of its aspects.
We need all of those things but migrants are being scapegoated at the moment as being the cause of all of those problems when they are not. It is the failure of government planning.
