Most regional centres are bleeding people and wealth to the coastal fringe.  Therefore, it should be possible to develop programs that are good for both the regional centres and the migrants.

An ABC report <https://ab.co/2vBvDqs> described the way in which the community of Nhill made Karen migrants welcome, for mutual benefit.  It demonstrates one effective approach, and was successful enough that other centres have followed its example.  It also suggests that there are benefits if the initiative comes from the people living in the provincial centres.

I agree with the comments that the attractiveness of regional areas is important.  In particular, access to education and health would complement other programs to encourage migrants to settle outside the large cities.

It seems to me that there is also a larger issue that impinges on this.  Current politics seem to thrive on negativity and polarisation.  A campaign to encourage Australia to be less mean-spirited would help, I imagine.

Great comments and very relative.  I gave a keynote today at the Smart Infrastructure Summit - http://www.smartinfrastructuresummit.com.au/ and part of the talk was policy incentives to get people into the regions, not remote towns but regions like Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast in QLD.

Agree with the other comments.  As a migrant myself, the driving factor for my parents to migrate was opportunity.  Opportunity for a better life, education for kids (there were 9 of us), to generate income that could be sent back home etc.

Infrastructure is important, jobs are important, education ie, schools universities are important.  Whatever creates opportunity.

There is evidence that in some towns it works, particularly when there is housing and jobs on offer. Part of the problems come from the anxieties about moving on your own to possible hostile areas. The current evidence of racism and exclusion are not good attractors. If it is to work it needs careful planning and resourcing, and moving not a family but a bigger group to areas where they are made to feel welcome. .

Law and regulations are the building blocks of a coherent society. These frameworks influence each one of us without exception. With tremendous potential to create a fair society, legal and regualatory policies require an element of substantial public endorsement. MindHive, as a crowdsourcing platform, is a public vehicle that brings Government, Universities, Business and the broader community into one digital room. Through the MindHive platform effective policymaking, is empowered by the depth of the discussion, encompassing the views of each diverse and individual contributor.

How should Australia’s law and regulatory policies and strategy be defined? How to ensure the effectiveness of our nation’s law and regulatory environment? What are the solutions to current and recurring shortcomings?

Discuss. Analyse. Exchange. Learn. Inform
