21 Mar Two Designated Area Migration Agreements (DAMAs) with the South Australian Government
South Australia will receive an economic raise with the Morrison Government agreeing to two Designated Area Migration Agreements (DAMA) with the South Australian Government.
The Adelaide city Technology and Innovation Advancement Agreement and Regional South Australia DAMA arrangements will help a range of industries including agriculture, hospitality, forestry health, tourism and construction between others helping to fill critical employment gaps and manage economic growth.
Covering 60 occupations, up to 300 people per year will be able to be sponsored over the five-year agreement through the Adelaide City Technology and Innovation Advancement DAMA.
Under the Regional South Australia DAMA up to 750 people per year can be sponsored over the five-year agreement covering 114 occupations.
South Australia will join the Northern Territory and Kalgoorlie-Boulder among the first regions in Australia to enter a five-year agreement with the Commonwealth aimed at ensuring skilled migrants contribute through employment in key roles where Australian workers are not available.
