THE NEW MIGRATION PROGRAM
An innovative campaign to boost South Australia’s dwindling population through migration is already yielding some positive results. And the number of new migrants to the State has increased significantly in recent months.
They come mostly from such countries as the United Kingdom, China, India, Singapore, and Pakistan.
And not to be forgotten are the increasing number of Africans who, having found their way to the land Down Under, have decided to settle in South Australia because of lifestyle considerations.
The official intention of the new migration program is quite clear. In fact, according to the Sunday Mail newspaper report, it is widely expected that the new wave of migrants will help boost the state’s population growth to about two million by the year 2050 - it is 1.6 million now.
We are, of course, talking about a particular category of migrants; notably, the well qualified urban professional types.
High on the list of the desired migrants are the following: information technology professionals, accountants, doctors, nurses, cooks, managements consultants, market research analysts, and allied health workers such as speech therapists.
