COMMITTEE FOR ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT OF AUSTRALIA CEDA: Migration must be central to Australia's post-COVID-19 economic recovery

Fed Govt should promote migration as a key plank of the post-COVID-19 economic recovery - Paper Attached

The labour market after COVID-19 brings together expert views on the critical issues shaping the jobs market, including for women, the long-term unemployed and young people, and the role of wage subsidies, immigration, training and industrial relations.

The paper calls on the Federal Government to extend the JobKeeper and JobSeeker payments to temporary migrants such as students and those on skilled work visas, as other countries have done with their own pandemic payments.

The report finds Australia can benefit from expected tighter restrictions on migration in other countries, by encouraging migration by highly skilled workers.

“This crisis will have long-lasting impacts on migration policy across the world and in Australia,” CEDA Chief Economist, Jarrod Ball said.
