The Queensland Government's Department of Employment, Economic
Development and Innovation (DEEDI) is holding a free seminar for skilled
and business migrants on Thursday 11 November in Maroochydore.
The Settling in Queensland seminar will provide useful information to help Queensland sponsored and potential business migrants, investors and skilled migrants to settle successfully in Queensland.
Parliamentary Secretary for Employment and Economic Development Jan Jarratt said assisting new migrants to settle in Queensland has significant economic benefits.
"Queensland is open for business and this seminar is the perfect opportunity to obtain the local knowledge and guidance necessary to kick-start a new business or purse a new job," Ms Jarratt said.
"Business and skilled migrants strengthen our economy and create more jobs for Queenslanders.
"Successful business migrants who apply for permanent residency inject approximately $140 million annually into the Queensland economy.
"Currently only 40 per cent of sponsored business migrants apply for permanent residency so we'd like to encourage and help them settle here and make Queensland their home."
DEEDI Principal Project Officer for Skilled and Business Migration Rohana Wendt said the seminar will include presentations from guest speakers, a Mini Expo, and informal networking sessions.
"We will also be providing information on a variety of topics including starting and growing a business in Queensland, banking, finance and business franchising, purchasing or renting real estate and taxation," Ms Wendt said.
"Attendees will hear inspiring stories from settled migrants who will talk about their personal experiences settling in Queensland.
"This will be the sixth Settling in Queensland seminar we have held this year, including two language specific seminars for Chinese and Korean business migrants in Brisbane. The last seminar had over 100 attendees and presenters."
Any new migrants to Queensland are welcome to attend but numbers are limited. To register for the seminar contact Rohana Wendt on (07) 3404 3682.
