Beyond five million: the Victorian Government's population policy

1 Jan 2004
Description

The Victorian Government's population policy outlines the government's visions for 'growing' Victoria's population in an economically, socially and environmentally sustainable manner. The policy focuses on six key strategies. These are addressing low fertility rates by reducing obstacles to raising a family and providing more support for children as they grow, increasing overall migration from overseas with a focus on attracting more skilled migrants, achieving a balance in interstate migration with a view to retaining and attracting young people to Victoria, maintaining population growth in regional areas by strengthening the economies of provincial centres and rural areas, preparing for the changing needs of an ageing population by encouraging workforce participation and addressing skills shortages, and ensuring that population growth is sustainable and manageable by reducing wastage of energy, water and other resources.
