Peter Dutton has signalled intention to reduce Australia's migration intake

Peter Dutton has signalled he is willing to swing an axe through Australia's migration intake if it is considered in the nation's best interests.

The coalition government has already cut the annual migration program to 190,000 places from more than 300,000 under Labor.

Mr Dutton says if the government has to bring it back further, they will do so.

New Liberal senator Jim Molan used his first speech in parliament (Wed night) to warn Australia may not be able to handle any more legal migrants.

The retired major general says Australia is approaching it's migration limits, if it hadn't already exceeded them.

The Asia-Pacific region signs the Tokyo Convention to improve business and education connections

tokyo convention

The Tokyo Convention is an agreement between the countries in the Asia-Pacific region to recognise higher education qualifications for work and study purposes. This agreement not only strengthens the ties between Asia-Pacific countries but allows for more mobility for students and workers moving internationally between these countries. Japan and South Korea were the last to join the convention, allowing the agreement to come into effect on February 1st. Other countries are being encouraged to join the agreement to further grow the cultural ties between countries.

 

Australia is named the top destination for wealthy migrants

Australia top destination for wealthy migrants

Australia has been listed as the world's top destination for high-net-worth migrants in the New World Wealth's 2018 Global Wealth Migration Review. The proximity to emerging Asian economies, the safety and security level and the problems associated with the US healthcare system make it a popular choice according to researchers. The level of growth in Australia over the past decade has also contributed to making Australia more appealing for those wealthy migrants looking to invest. This is the third consecutive year that Australia has been listed higher than the US, with 10,000 of the total 95,000 high-net-worth individuals that migrated last year choosing Australia. Most of these migrants were Chinese, who look to invest in Australia due to its incredible 83% growth in total wealth over the last 10 years. When comparing this rate to the mere 20% increase in total wealth in the US you can see why more wealthy migrants are choosing to settle in Australia.

While the income of so many wealthy migrants is considered a positive for Australia it can cause increases in property prices, making it harder for locals to compete for property. Luckily there are regulations the Government can put in place to reduce the effects of this on the housing market, such as preventing migrants or foreign investors from purchasing second-hand homes on the market.
