Australia will modernise its immigration policies in order to facilitate the entry of talented workers
On Thursday, Australia suggested a new immigration system that would streamline the process of obtaining permanent residency and speed up the admission of highly talented employees from countries like India.

Labor's federal administration has promised to adjust the present points-based system for selecting skilled migrants in order to better pinpoint those with the requisite abilities for Australia's economy.
We have a flawed migration system. It's bad for business, and it's bad for immigration. Also, it's not doing enough to help Australians. It's unacceptable, Home Affairs Minister Clare O'Neil told the National Press Club.
Due in large part to its ageing population, Australia faces stiff competition from countries like Canada and Germany for qualified immigrants.
The administration has pledged to streamline the visa application process for highly skilled workers and take measures to keep foreign students.
O'Neil has promised that before the end of the year, temporary skilled visa holders will be able to seek for permanent residency, a step they had previously been denied. She was quoted by Reuters as saying that this would not increase Australia's annual intake of permanent migrants.
As a result of significant employee shortages, Australian businesses have asked the government to increase the number of permanent migrants allowed into the country from 140,000 to 195,000 for the current fiscal year. This increase occurred in September.
The government announced on June 30 that effective July 1, the migrant pay barrier for temporary skilled employees would increase from the current A$53,900 to A$70,000 ($46,250).
According to the government, migrant workers are being exploited because 90% of full-time jobs in Australia now pay more than the current criteria.
A historic analysis has revealed that Australia's migration system promotes the country's 1.8 million guest workers to be "permanently temporary" due to severe limitations on permanent entry.
It is still unknown how much of the evaluation the Albanian government will embrace, but a piece revealed before O'Neil's presence suggested that it would be pressed to eliminate skills lists, increase visa issuances for care workers, and reduce processing times for family visas.
There is little evidence that the government's skilled occupation lists for employer sponsorship are effective, according to a piece of the assessment that was revealed before Clare O'Neil's address today.
A net-zero economic transition and the development of vital and sovereign skills were cited as examples of "anticipated skilled labour needs" that aren't met by the current lists of skilled occupations.
