Australian government wants Indian students to come and stay in the country

The much-needed skills for the Australian economy in the long run are present in India and the government of Australia is looking to attract the young Indian base in years to come.

In wake of well-known violent attacks against students of India in Australia, the Australian minister of immigration and citizenship, Chris Evans, said that keeping in view the ageing workforce of Australia, the government has recognized the importance of attracting Indian IT, medical and engineering professionals as permanent residents of Australia under the SSMP i.e. the skilled stream migration program.

Mr. Evans said during his visit to India that the medical system of Australia is already very much dependent on healthcare professionals from India and one important message he would like to convey to Indians is that they are looking for Indians who have the skills required by the Australian economy. He also said that Indians are a big community in Australia and have settled very well in the country.

In spite of the fact that there has been reduction in the number of skilled stream migrant program entrants, Mr. Evans said that potential skilled immigrants from India have nothing to worry about as this is just a small cutback in numbers due to the current global recession.

It is also learned that the Australian government is planning to bring into action more strict quality assurance norms for education providers in the country so that students from foreign countries do not suffer.
