Our immigration numbers are disgracefully low. You can't grow a state when the government has blocked all migration. Add some employment categories back onto the skilled employment list (currently only doctors and nurses allowed), add Perth back on to the Regional Sponsored Migration Scheme, speed up migration processing and make special provisions to encourage foreign students to stay after graduation. This is our new government's first mistake. I hope they fix it quickly.
