Talking Point: The missing migrants

  • Year: 2016
  • Author: The Regional Australia Institute

International migration is responsible for more than half of Australia's population growth and presents a unique opportunity for regional areas looking to transform their community.

For regional areas grappling with an ageing or declining population, international migration can offer population stability, diversity and create jobs. The RAI's Talking Point: The Missing Migrants offers insights into international migration trends and why proactive, locally led strategies to attract migrants to regional areas need to be a top priority.

Success stories in regional Western Australia and Victoria are a testament to how international migration can reinvigorate a community and offer lessons for others looking to address population challenges.
