The Australian Government has announced that they have created a new taskforce, the “Global Business and Talent Attraction Taskforce”, to bring business and skills to Australia.
This was announced on ABC News, and repeated by Minister Tudge in a tweet this morning (5 September 2020).
The Shepparton news reported that Peter Dutton told Nine News "It's OK that we've got support in place at the moment with JobKeeper and JobSeeker - that's fine and that's a good thing - but to get to the next stage we need to have investment."

We noticed that Immigration South Australia has changed its name to Move to South Australia.
Move to South Australia has updated its criteria for interim 491 and 190 nominations to support and prioritise South Australia’s economic recovery and public health response.
Today it has been announced by Immigration SA that they have received a limited allocation from the Department of Home Affairs for GSM 491 visa and 190 visa nominations and Business/Investment visa nominations.
The Australian government’s Department of Home Affairs has recently introduced a new program to boost the movement of highly skilled individuals from around the world to Australia.
This includes a fast-tracked pathway to Australian permanent residency for applicants with global talent in a target sector.
This is one of the first programs of its type where Australia is out and about in the world, looking to track down talented people and asking them to come to Australia.
