Over the next two decades, the world's major economies will age further and many will shrink rapidly - an unprecedented phenomenon. Competition for skilled migration will intensify. In this environment, Australia's piecemeal immigration policies of the last 10 years will not serve us well. The new Albanese Government has inherited a dysfunctional immigration department, massive application backlogs and an incoherent set of immigration policy settings that serve neither Australians or new migrants well. Dr Abul Rizvi will discuss these challenges and what now needs to be done
