Migration roundtable to address skills shortage

RDA Orana will host a two-day discussion focussed on migration as part of the organisation’s commitment to regional workforce shortages.

“Locally-led migration strategies have provided a response to issues facing rural and regional communities, including shifts in workforce and population,” RDA Orana Director for Regional Development Megan Dixon said.

The event will begin with an employer forum to discuss visa options for employers who may be interested in hiring migrant workers. This will be followed by a workshop about migrant experiences and a roundtable to look at regional settlement.
