When it comes to the development of a region, migration of skilled professionals can make a big difference. A realization of this effect is creating a new scenario in South Australia. The state is taking steps to improve its strength as an economic powerhouse. These steps count on the migration of skilled workers from different countries.
Most of the skilled migrants entering Australia largely choose the eastern seaboard as their destination. The reasons for this trend are:
- Job opportunities
- Higher salaries
- Larger population ‘
- The growing diversity of ethnic communities
These factors are undeniably big pullers for migrants. Now, South Australia needs to improve on these fronts. The state needs to add these to its own unique strengths. With the best measures taken, development cannot elude the state for long.
South Australia needs to prove why it is a better option for skilled migrants. The business community of the state is addressing the issues. It is focused on addressing the skill shortage plaguing businesses across the state.
Improved visa programs and better migration options are among the solutions planned. The solutions being implemented at present include boosting the skill base of the state. Increasing the population is yet another aspect addressed.
Some people in South Australia are guarded about the idea of skilled migration. But their worries are in the wrong place, considering the regional community with groups of migrant families. Balaklava is a good example. The schools and community clubs have benefited from the growing population fueled by migration. The community has also come out as a more diverse and enriched one.
The business community in the state support the two-way trade that results from migration. The immigrants will not only bring in their money but their family and relatives too. This will help extend trade connections to international markets.
The migration will give the businesses more access to skilled workers, which is the need of the hour. The Federal Government has recognized South Australia’s unique issues. It has taken steps to help solve the state’s economic and business challenges. The government has introduced several regional visa options to better facilitate skilled migration.
There are quite a few advantages in settling down in the state. It has cleaner air, fewer traffic jams, lower house prices, and larger blocks (family-sized) that are closer to the city. Moreover, it has a high standard of living.
The word must spread that the state is ready for international business. Business SA is building a team of the best experts to step up the task. The team will assist business owners to thrive in today’s competitive environment. The experts will make them capable of meeting the new challenges.
This will be the state’s best effort to make its mark in the global economy. The increase in skilled, business and economic migration will invigorate the state’s progress. It will give the international skilled population a highly prospective destination too.
