Multicultural Affairs Queensland commissioned Deloitte Access Economics to undertake research on the skills and overseas qualifications of migrants and refugees.

The report Seizing the opportunity: Making the most of the skills and experience of migrants and refugees explores the economic and social opportunity from the better utilisation of skills and experience of migrants and refugees in Queensland.

New evidence reveals more than 6,200 skilled migrants and refugees have qualifications which align with current skill shortages but they can't get a job in any of those much needed areas.

The report has also found that the Queensland economy could benefit from a boost of $250 million in the next 10 years if the skills and experience of people who are migrants and refugees are recognised.
