“It’s absolutely crystal clear [immigration] has always been a driver of the Australian economy. We need skilled migrants.”
– Susan Lloyd-Hurwitz, Mirvac Chief Executive (The Australian, 8 May 2022).
Significant government investment in infrastructure and housing support packages across Australia has boosted and preserved the economy through the pandemic. But the pause on international migration has left Australian states in a battle for talent. Nowhere are the skill pressures more acute than in WA, where there are more than one and a half jobs for every unemployed person.
Ensuring WA is well-positioned to win the battle for talent requires committed consideration of how to provide homes for a future workforce and what is needed to maintain housing affordability.
With elevated demand for workforce across the resources, infrastructure and property sectors, hear from industry leaders on the opportunities to turn WA into Australia’s leading talent attraction destination.
