A report by the Philippine Overseas Labor Office revealed that the shortage of nurses in Australia is estimated to be 40,000 positions over the next three years. Additionally, the report stated the shortage of workers in Australia's construction industry is projected to be up to 750,000 positions over the next 20 years.
"With its mining and construction boom that run short of skilled workers and its healthcare system now with an acute need for registered nurses and other allied professionals, there are tremendous opportunities to widen the gateway for jobs for Filipinos in Australia across all industries and across all states and territories," Cao added.
