Master Builders welcomes the opportunity to make a submission to the inquiry into the role of permanent migration in nation building (the Inquiry). The building and construction industry has a two-fold interest in ensuring an effective and attractive migration system.

And, secondly, a healthy in-flow of international migrants drives demand for housing, community and commercial building activity, and civil infrastructure works.
