Why a growing Australia is nothing to fear

28 Sep 2011
Description

This report outlines the benefits and realities of Australia's growing population.

A growing population presents us with challenges and opportunities. Population growth, and the skilled migration that fuels it, helps our economy grow - giving us the resources to support our ageing population, build better infrastructure, and protect our environment. A growing, pluralistic society makes us socially richer too. Population growth is not a project driven by the business lobby or politicians. It is a fact. Australia’s population is growing, and our demographic structure means it will keep growing. Rather than pretend population growth is not happening, we should be actively trying to harness the benefits.
