One shop site for info

A NEW web site has been launched to provide both formal and informal information for migrants to Perth.

One Stop WA’s Andy Macready said the site would feature a discussion forum where potential migrants could discuss issues of relevance with existing migrants in Perth.

“We need to attract interest from the local migrant population so they can interact impartially with potential migrants,” Mr Macready said.

“We are also attempting to create interest from councils such as Joondalup that could help us in our quest to attract potential business migrants to certain areas in the Perth metropolitan area.”

Mr Macready said he hoped the site would fulfil a distinct lack of informational support available to potential migrants with small to medium enterprises.

“What surprises me most is the lack of interest of banks in attracting new migrant accounts before they leave their country of origin,” he said.

“Small business migrants are coming in droves and most are bringing in a lot of money but no bank appears interested in being pro-active and attracting such customers prior to arrival.

“I have contacted one major bank and pointed out the difficulties involved in opening an Australian bank account from overseas but was told to go out and do some analysis as to how much money it would generate for them.

“I’d like these companies to be aware of the possibilities open to them from SME business migrants if they do their respective homework.”
