View point: 

In May 2016 the Treasury released material from an internal immigration policy forum it held in September 2014.

The slide pack material released here was created as part of a process to come to a clearer shared position within Treasury on immigration policy. The slides outline:

  • why it was believed that further clarity on the Treasury's immigration position was required;
  • the key migration trends (as at September 2014);
  • the proposed Treasury position on both the overall quantity of inward migration and potential improvements to support a productive and inclusive economy; as well as,
  • the evidence supporting these judgments.

These slides represented policy judgments that have continued to be considered since this forum took place in 2014.
