SA calls for DAMA

SA Premier ‘has called for the prime minister to consider expanding Designated Area Migration Agreements’

SBS News published an article that includes the following passages:

South Australia Premier Steven Marshal has urged Prime Minister Scott Morrison to allow more skilled young migrants to enter the country to help regional areas.

Mr Marshall has called for the prime minister to consider expanding Designated Area Migration Agreements (DAMAs) because states such as South Australia and Tasmania have vastly different needs to Sydney and Melbourne.

The premier’s plan includes more incentives for international students, and looking at ways of keeping them here once they’ve finished their studies.
