More Air Access for Australian Visa Holders to Boost Jobs and Tourism in Tasmania

The Tasmanian government is currently making plans to add air capacity to promote immigration and tourism in the country, particularly in Tasmania. "It's vital that all stakeholders work together in order to take advantage and make the most of this tremendous opportunity," says the Accommodation Association of Australia, whose members have more than 1,000 lodges across the state. "Our industry has been pushing for greater air access to Tasmania for the past year and we welcome the extra seats and additional flights that will soon come on line. The airlines, the state government which established an Access Working Group to examine the issue, Tourism Tasmania and Tourism Industry Council Tasmania deserve credit for helping to bring about change," says Accommodation Association of Australia Chief Executive Officer, Richard Munro. Munro added, "There are direct economic links between more seats on flights to Tasmania and tourism investment, which provides accommodation operators with a much-needed injection of confidence, in order to make the additional air access become successful so that it continues." Australian tourism is one of the major industries in the state, and the government is keen on maximizing the benefits of this opportunity to promote Tasmania.

Apple Cofounder to Apply for Australian Citizenship

After his trip to Australia to promote the newest iPhone 5, Apple Co-Founder Steve Wozniak announced that he wants to obtain an Australian citizenship. Inspired by the new National Broadband Network in Australia, Wozniak said he would still keep his US citizenship but intends to reap the benefits of becoming an Australian citizen. "I spoke to [Australian Communications Minister Stephen Conroy] and they plan to roll it out to everyone in the country. I support [the national broadband plan] very much," Wozniak told the Australian Financial Review. During his interview with Brisbane's radio station 4BC, the Apple co-founder said, "It turns out I can keep my American citizenship. I intend to call myself an Australian and feel an Australian, and study the history and become as much of a real citizen here as I can." The ambitious National Broadband Network (NBN) in Australia is expected to deliver high-speed internet access to reach approximately 93 per cent of the country's businesses and households by June 2021. In his interview with the Australian Financial Review, Wozniak said that he has told Conroy about his support for the country's NBN plan and that he was 'underway to become an Australian citizen.' "It's one of the reasons why I actually like this country and want to become a citizen. I live in a country where we don't have any regulation of telecommunications," Wozniak said.

Australia Inaugurates Key Members for New South Asian Consultant Committee

The Australian government recently inaugurated more than 10 Indian-origin permanent residents to be the key members of the 'Subcontinent Ministerial Consultative Committee'. The newly inducted members will inform and advise the Australian government on issues such as immigration, skill, education, trade, and foreign aid related to sub-continent communities in the country. Made up of 17 key members, the consultant committee represents the communities in Australia with Indian, Pakistani, Nepali, Sri Lankan, and Bangladeshi heritage. Manoj Kumar, Melbourne-based committee member, said, "The 17-member committee has been formed with an aim to increase and improve engagement with wider ethnic communities on their issues of concern, to assist service delivery to those communities and to improve the dissemination of information on the government's policies." Also an active member of Australia India Business Council Victoria, Kumar said his primary agenda would be to urge the government to simplify the rules of the International English Language Testing system for Australian immigrants wanting to obtain Permanent Residency (PR). The Subcontinent Ministerial Consultative Committee is chaired by four members of the Parliament including Australian Immigration and Citizenship Minister Chris Bowen. "I think that various communities have different issues and anything which enables communities to communicate with ministers and with government is a good thing. So we've established these committees, of which the Sub-Continental Ministerial Advisory Council is a very important one," Bowen said in an interview.
