Australia is now vouching for skilled workers from the global regions to fill the labour shortage gap in the country said the demographer. India and China are the key contributors of Australian immigration population, he said as quoted by the ABC Net Au.
The Australian Bureau of Statistics revealed that Australian population has reached 25 million marks. The population of Australia is increasing by 1 person every 83 seconds estimates the ABS population clock.
George Megalogenis, the Political Commentator and Author said that is not possible to affirm the exact identity of 25th million persons. In the most likely case it can be a female student from China or skilled worker. The 2 largest immigrant groups in Australia since 21st century are Indians and Chinese, said the author.
