The Employment White Paper (“The White Paper”).
The UDIA National strongly supports frameworks and policies that alleviate the immediate impacts of the skills shortage, builds the capacity of critical industries and boosts Australia’s economic productivity.
Our recommendations have three strategic aims:
1. Immediate strategies to address skills and training shortfalls to keep the economy and housing industry from stalling;
2. Medium-term strategies to build Australia’s capacity in a skilled labour force; and
3. Longer-term strategies to cement Australia’s ability to attract skilled and talented people a well balanced workforce.
