Victoria's Skilled Migration Strategy builds on the State's knowledge and positive experiences with migration to increase the intake of skilled and business migrants, particularly to regional Victoria. Key components of the strategy include international and domestic marketing to attract migrants, international students and working holiday-makers, a Regional Migration Incentive Fund (RMIF) to provide support to regional communities to develop and implement local strategies to attract skilled and business migrants, and targeted programs to help local communities attract and settle skilled and business migrants in industries and regional communities with skills shortages. This document highlights achievements between 2000 and 2003 and presents snapshots of some of the success stories.
