How will employers and other stakeholder interests be represented under the new program?

New consultative committee arrangements have been established, including a PALM Advisory Group, sector committees and thematic working groups.

These committees include representatives from industry, employers, Pacific diaspora, unions, community organisations and the Australian Government.

The first meeting of the PALM Advisory Group was held on 15 October 2021, and this and the sector committees (agriculture, meat processing, care) are expected to meet quarterly.

Sector committees will provide ongoing mechanisms for key stakeholders to engage with issues relevant to Pacific labour mobility and their area of interest and expertise.
