2010 CPD Immigration Law Conference
Recent changes to Australia’s immigration policy on skilled migration sent a wave of alarm to international students, future immigrants, education providers and several industry bodies alike.
Senator Chris Evans has indicated in his speeches that these changes were made towards building a more skilled Australia as well as addressing labor concerns of skill shortages in Australia.
The new Skilled Occupation List which will be published shortly in April with implementation in mid-2010, for example, will focus on high value professions and trades and will identify the specialist skills that Australia need to plan for.
Our principal solicitor, Mrs. Anne O’Donoghue will be speaking at CPD Immigration Law Conference in Melbourne on the 26th to the 27th of March. She will be speaking on the recent changes to the current General Skilled Migration program, the hottest topic in Australia’s Immigration world today.
We will shortly be publishing our paper for the conference on our website. Stay tune!
